As much as we all love to stitch, if we’re completely honest, there are particular aspects of stitching we love a lot more than others.

For many of us, the stitching itself is what we love. The preparation for the stitching… well, not so much!

While some people relish the processes involved with fabric preparation, design transfer and framing up, many of us find the discipline of such tasks somewhat tedious. After all, there are only so many hours we can devote to our stitching, so why spend our time preparing when we could actually be stitching?!

As tedious as these processes may be, however, I think we’d all agree they add a level of excellence to our stitching and the time we invest in preparation actually pales into insignificance compared to the number of hours we devote to the stitching itself.

So, it might be time to accept Denzel Washington’s advice that we have to ‘Do what you gotta do so you can do what you wanna do.’

This week we aim to make the process of framing up a little easier with some helpful advice and a product or two that may be just what you need. So, read on as we help you get to ‘what you wanna do’ in a much timelier fashion.
