Help the spaz, please!
I am working on my first embroidery project--a Sublime Stitching pattern on a ribbed tank top for my daughter--and I am completely incapable of getting decent tension on the fabric, despite the use of a hoop. Actually, I am completely incapable of getting decent tension on any type of fabric with a hoop because I am clearly missing the skills to use a hoop properly.
I have been lurking around here for quite a while and I can't believe that I am using my first post to reveal myself to be so inept.
Does anyone have any tips?
