I am just getting started with hand embroidery. I have some simple designs that I will be transferring to linen to make some nice decorative hoops. I haven't worked much with linen but wasn't sure if I should pre-wash it and/or iron it?
I see lots of recommendations for working with linen for clothes, but i'm not sure what folks do when they are working on hoops that will be hung on the wall. Any suggestions or descriptions of what works for them are greatly appreciated.
