1. Keep your work as taut as possible.  You will need either a frame or a circular hoop.   This will keep your stitches even.
2. If you are using a frame, sew the fabric with large stitches onto the material which runs across the top and bottom bars of the frame, top to top, bottom to bottom.
3. If using a frame, always wind  the fabric on the bars so that the BACK is outside.    This way the design is covered, and has less chance of being soiled.
4. If you use a hoop, remember to take the fabric off the hoop when finished each time, otherwise you will make circular marks in it.

I am curious about tip 4 because I always struggle to take it off or not overnight. I am thinking since it is there, just keep it there until you finish all the area circled. If you take it off every time, you will damage the fabric every time you put it on. This is my idea and not sure correct or not...

A Qsnap frame clips on very easily and does not pull or distort the fabric or stitches.  You can leave it in the same place for quite some weeks and it does not mark your work.  It is firm but not over tight and keeps your fabric in place.

A Q Snap Frame is usually square and made of some sort of pipe, and then hs four plastic sleeves that slip over each side.  They hold your work firm and so not mark the fabric.  You can get them in a varietly of sizes.

I use a Q Snap frame and find it great.  Also I don't need to take it off, just leave it on until I need to move it.
