Consistent tension is crucial for creating proper stitches. They should be flat against the fabric, not too tight, not too loose. Experiment on scrap fabric until you learn how tightly you need to pull the floss to create a perfect stitch.

It is tempting to stitch for hours at a time, especially when you can make the time and when you get in the "stitching zone." It is important to avoid this temptation, especially when you are a new stitcher. Taking breaks helps to prevent repetitive stress injuries and eyestrain.
Stop stitching, get up, stretch, rest your eyes and hands for a moment, and then start again if you like. If you have trouble with "getting in the zone" and forgetting to take breaks, use a timer. Use the TV schedule or musical selections. When the buzzer, show or CD stops, it is time for a break.
