Learning something new about how to put fabric on a scroll frame.

with 1 Comment

One of my lovely followers left me a comment and I’d like to share it, because I’ve learned something NEW, now we are never to old to learn  and even though I’ve been stitching for 26 years. I’d never thought of trying this with my scroll frames.

Here you go.


Hi Shazie I’ve been meaning to ask you for ages, why you prefer to have the rollers on a frame on the top rather than underneath? I always do it the other way round but when I saw you did the reverse I wondered if I was missing something?

Hi Maureen,
Do you mean the fabric rolling from the back over the top, if so it’s because if you are going to get it dirty then it gets dirty on the back of the fabric not on the front.

BUT if you look at Faby’s blog post you will see she does it a different way, I’m going to try this way, except I’m toooo lazy to stitch fabric on scroll rods, in my early days I did, but now you can buy clip frames, I always opt for this type, especially with commission stitching as the work generally not on the frame very long.

Very interesting, I’m going to try this tomorrow.

Happy Stitching,

    Thanks for that Shazie. The keeping your work clean angle was something I hadn’t thought of, so that was something useful I hadn’t thought of! I did think rollers on top would cast a shadow close to the top and bottom edges. However good lighting would sort that out. X
