Making the fabric taut
by Linda M.
I am starting on my second cross stitch project. The first one I never finished because it was looking so bad.
What I am having a problem with is getting the fabric in the scrolling frame, that I just brought for this project, taut enough to work.
I have it as tight as it will go and the fabric is still loose.
The same thing happened with my first project; only then I used a hoop. The fabric was always too loose, and I tightened the hoop as far as it would go.
I wanted to use a scroll frame so that I could leave the project in there, and not worry about the fabric having a ring indentation in it.
Please, I would really appreciate any ideas on how to get the fabric tighter.
