Dan :
The key to using a hoop for Rosettes is not to stretch the material. I use the hoop only to hold the material flat. Not to stretch it.
Most of the time I do the same thing to hold my Lazy Stitch work as well. Makes it easy to handle and flip over and such. See what the stitching is doing on the backside.

You are right, about the material stretch though. The tension is the key, not to get the lumpy effect. It does take practice.

I'm interested in this upholsters fabric that you got. Can you bring some along to the Dells next month. That will be the next time, I will see you. To bad we did not have this conversation last week. I could have looked at it last weekend, when I saw you. I was the one fixing my broken bustle trailer dowel just before grand entry.
