There are a lot of styles of embroidery hoops and frames. It is your decision whether you use one or not. If you a beginner cross-stitcher perhapse you will prefere to put your fabric in an embroidery hoop. Just don’t pull your fabric too tight or it will distort the weave of the fabric.

Tension in your stitching is by far the easiest thing to correct, especially if you’re using a hoop – pull tight but not so tight that you stretch the hole at all. If you stitch in hand you have to be more careful.

I find that pulling the thread mostly through and then using my little finger in the hand holding the needle to “flick” the tail the final bit gives perfect tension and is reproducible for each stitch. Pay attention to the tension you’re applying as, if you stitch in different directions or do “patches” of stitching over the piece, you’ll pull it in weird directions.
