I knew there was a reason why I did counted cross stitch in my life.
I was thread painting, and noticed that the fabric was bunching really bad even with the stabilizer. I was studying my brother embroidering machine, and decided to try the hoops I had for counted cross stitch. Cheap plastic ones that I got at Walmart along time ago. It works wonderfully. I can move the fabric so easily, and it pulls the fabric tight. Whether or not it puckers, I won't know that until I take it off the hook. This would be great for free motion quilting as well. A lot easier to move. Of course it wouldn't work for a large quilt, just a small wall hanging, or project.
Just thought I would pass this on. Does anyone else do this?
