I was just offered a dozen heavy 18 X 27 oval frames by my local wholesaler...at a really cheap price. I am asking if it is something worth buying to sell on my site?

He also offered large 24" monster hoops.

Any advice????

I always use them for hand quilting. heavy would be good.

I have two. One is just the hoop, the other will attach to a floor stand. I've used them for my hand quilting for years.

I have two large ones that I use on occasion.

I have one, but have not used it yet...

I love them! Especially when you need that extra inch. If you are selling them, let me know - I may want to buy one.

I have about a dozen hoops of different sizes and shapes and I don't use any of them. I just pin or glue the layers securely and quilt in my lap. Like that much better and get better results.

I quilted my first quilt on an oval hoop. I had difficulty with the parts that were on the bias as they went over the curve of the hoop. Now I'm using a 14" round hoop and don't have nearly the problem with stretching that I did with that oval one.

so, there isn't by any chance a rug frame in the group? i've been looking for an affordable one since somehow mine grew legs and wandered away :(.
but to answere your question...oval frames i think are easier to use than round ones when it comes to fairly large projects, it is easier to reach across the oval instead of using a large round hoop.
