Framing is an essential part when direct application is involved. An evenly taught suspension aids in one's ability to accurately design and work. Special suspension tools can help save time and frustrations as opposed to pining. By allowing the user to fully adjust the frame, it alleviates the need to build a separate frame for each size of work. This can be advantageous when one does a lot of custom work or clothing where sizes are specific to the piece. If one is working with a set size every time, building a fixed solid frame may be cheaper but the frame isn't calapseable.
