I don't know about you, but if I took all this time to prepare my fabric, I'd never have time to stitch!

Strangely enough Pam, if one is to get the superb results that the ladies of those days achieved, you really do have to prepare your fabrics properly. I did a six week course at the Embroidery Guild of Vic.(Australia) a couple of years ago, and our tutor insisted that the class work all stitches on fabric stretched correctly in a hoop or other appropriate holder. And it did make a difference to the quality of our work. The tension of all the stitching was even and so the fabric didn't pucker, and our work was cleaner as well. I know experienced embroiderers can achieve stunning results without going to a lot of trouble, but 'experience' is the key word. I can probably stitch a lot better than many of my contemporaries but my work is very amateurish compared to some of the members of our Guild.
