A frame to hold the work taut whilst it is being stitched;  a tightening device made of two concentric wooden rings that fit snugly within one another,  the fabric is placed between them and secured in place by tightening the rings. The outer one has a screw mechanism,  causing it to close tightly against the inner, accommodating any thickness of material and keeping the material taut whilst it is being worked. A tabor, tabouret, tabore, tambour  are other and similar versions.
