large pattern/hard to hold fabric

MaryToMarch 10, 2005

I'm doing a piece that will be 11x25 when finished. If I ever finish it :D When you're doing a piece that large do you use a scroll bar, a hoop or is there another way to stretch it? I have a scroll bar that is very long and I've used it before on pieces. This one seems like there's just too much fabric and it won't stay tight. I've been using a hoop but I just began to work on it and I'm wondering what will happen when I add the beads and use the specialty threads (the angels' wings are "fluffy" like angora). You are always wonderful about answering questions so I can't wait to hear from you! Thanks.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

it's odd that a scroll bar is not holdiing it in place what u can do for it to be tight is to stitch it on at both ends before rolling it
