Tips and Tricks Tuesday: Mounting Your Work

I spent this weekend visiting Houston, TX for my cousin's wedding, so today's post is going to be short and sweet as I continue to play catch-up! (It's amazing what being gone for three days will do to your schedule.)

Today's featured tutorial is by our team captain, Gretchen aka JuneAtNoon.

Gretchen has an excellent tutorial on her blog about mounting an embroidered fabric piece using the lacing method:

Definitely worth a look, if for no other reason than her pictures are great!

Needle N' Thread also has a tutorial about lacing and framing an finished piece:

Polka and Bloom (who sells lovely embroidery patterns, by the way) has a tutorial about how to frame embroidery using a hoop, which is very popular on Etsy:

That's all for this week! Happy stitching!


  1. Those are really great tutorials! Thanks for finding and sharing them!

  2. wow...I love the lacing, but I am too lazy to do it

  3. Amanda, the lacing is actually really pretty fast once you learn how to do it. :) (I can do that faster than some other sorts of finishing.)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. We hope you'll enjoy the community here at EtsyNEAT!
