You might think embroidery hoops are just one of the tools your grandmother used for her embroidery work. But hoops are an eco-friendly way to show off various types of crafts, art, and even vintage scarves.
You can easily find vintage hoops from eBay or on Etsy. You don’t even need to know how to sew or embroider. All you need is some imagination and you can have stylish hoop art to decorate your walls or to give as gifts.
