As most experienced stitchers know, when you come to the end of a project, a fabric that started off perfectly square has become distorted, often “sheared” diagonally. The use of frames can help reduce this distortion, but may not completely eliminate the need for “blocking”.

Blocking usually entails pinning the fabric to a hard surface such as dense corkboard, stretching and pulling it back into shape in the process. A light coating with water from a spray bottle will help the process and help the canvas retain its corrected shape.

It’s not too difficult a process, but some people may find it tricky, or may not have the correct materials available to them. This is why Wye Needlecraft offers a blocking service. Send us or bring in your finished canvas, and we’ll block and stretch it for you, and return it to you in its correct shape.

Please contact us for details.
