MOYER DESIGN FABRIC STRETCHING SYSTEM consists of interchangeable bars, allowing for a variety of useful combinations and sizes. Each set in the system can be UPGRADED to accommodate longer and wider fabric by adding additional sets.
Designed by Susan Louise Moyer, internationally recognized master silk painter & author of several iconic books on the subject.
This easy-to-use fabric stretching system automatically adjusts the tension of the wet fabric as you paint, eliminating the need to re-stretch work-in-progress... removing the hassles of push pins, tacks, and sagging silk. Fine rust proof fabric hooks and elastic cord keep the fabric suspended away from the frame and the work surface. This unique patented stretching system and its sturdy wooden frame make this equipment ideal for painting yardage and pre-hemmed silk scarves. All parts are interchangeable to create a variety of stretcher sizes. The frame can be completely disassembled for storage. The adjustable legs, easily slip on and off, can be placed most anywhere on the frame, enabling the frame to be supported on a surface that is smaller than the frame itself. Remove the legs to lay the frame on a flat surface for tracing, drawing, stamping, or screen printing designs. The legs each have two height points allowing one side to be adjusted differently to the other if a sloping painting area is required.
All painting area size suggestions are based on the hooks being on the inside of the frame, additional size can be obtained by using the bars with the hooks on the outside. Making your frame bigger or smaller is easy and uncomplicated, requiring no tools.
It’s built to last!
All sets come complete bars, legs and all necessary hardware, silk stretching hooks, and full instructions.
