Frequent question: How do you display a cross stitch collection?

How do you display cross stitch pieces?

Stick or bond the back part of your cross-stitch on the cardboard. You may use masking tape if you do not want to use glue or fabric adhesive. This will serve as the support of the fabric on the frame. After you have attached the fabric on the cardboard, place it inside the frame as you would do to frame a photo.

Can you cross stitch with a sewing machine?

Embroidery can be done by machine, and now so can cross-stitch! Cross-stitch by machine can be done on any fabric, so you can use aida for a hand-made look, or add cross-stitch to fabrics that you normally wouldn’t use, making the art very versatile.

How do you hang a cross stitch on a canvas frame?

Back your stitching with interfacing and press. Measure your canvas frame and mark the halfway points along each edge. Join up these points in pencil to make a cross on your frame. Use a pin to push through the central stitch of your cross stitched image – the point where the two ‘0’ gridlines cross on the chart.
