It can be tempting to leave your cross stitch project attached to the embroidery hoop, either overnight or when it's not in use - but don't! Those hoops are great tools for working, keeping your fabric tight and firm, making the stitch process easier, but they can damage the fabric if they're left inside for long periods of inactivity.
Our advice is to give your project a proper rest - loosen the tension and place your work-in-progress somewhere safe where it won't get damaged or creased.

Aim for a nice easy tension on your stitches. Don’t pull them so tight that they warp the fabric or leave them so loose that they gap. The stitches should lie flat against the fabric without pulling against it.
