So... what exactly is this box full of? I'm going to assume that it's a hand quilting setup of some sort, maybe? I received it from a friend's mother along with a ton of fabric. The fabric I can use, but I don't do any handwork. If I knew what it was, I could offer it up on Freecycle or something similar. Thanks!

Look like tapestry/embroidery frames!! The square one is definitely a tapestry frame, you slot the tapestry into the frame, then roll it as you work design.

The big oval is a quilting hoop, the square one with the wingnuts is a frame to hold your cross stitch while working on it. The long pieces that look like T's are the legs to one of the frames so you don't have to hold it in your hand. Others look like plain embroidery hoops.

I was going to say cross-stitch frame. Is tapestry in the UK the same as cross-stitch in the US?

Thank you all very much! That was exactly what I needed to know and I appreciate the quick responses. I've put them up on Freecycle, so hopefully they'll be on their way to someone who can use them soon. :)

Those are embroidery hoops. I would love to have them. Just made a basket of flowers and could not find a large hoop in the stores close by.

The rectangular one can also be used for needlepoint etc. The rest -without knowing the sizes - are embroidery and the large oval appears to be large enough for hand quilting.

You might offer them up for sale here - lots of ladies do hand work here.

The large ovals and circle ones with wing nuts are hand quilting hoops. The one I bought some time ago was $25.00 for a smaller one. You might want to keep one or two in case you ever want to try hand quilting. Hand quilting is a great take along project.
