There are lots of different styles of embroidery hoops and frames available. Whether you use one or not is up to you. Beginning stitchers may find it easier to put their fabric in an embroidery hoop.

To use a hoop, first loosen the screw and separate the two rounds. Place the round without the screw flat on a table or work surface. Lay the fabric over the hoop making sure the center of the fabric is in the center of the hoop. Place the other round over the fabric and press it down so the fabric is sandwiched between the two hoops. Gently pull the fabric taut as you tighten the screw on the hoop. Don’t pull the fabric too tight or it will distort the weave of the fabric.

Plastic / fabric canvas – This is another medium on which cross stitching is done.

This is used for doing beautiful cross stitch designs on homedecor and accessories. The canvas used here is an open mesh. Fabric canvas is more finer than the plastic canvas. You may need to apply interfacing to the back of fabric canvas to use it for anything functional.
