Do you use a hoop?
Hey, this is just something I was wondering about. The person who taught me to cross stitch did not use a hoop, so I never learned to use one. I just hold my fabric with my hands. I find that my cross stitching looks just fine without it. I have tried to use a hoop and it seems to slow me down. Are there many people out there who don't use a hoop to hold the fabric? I once asked a friend if I should start using one and she asked if my projects looked good. They did, so she said not to change anything.....I am really just curious....
