What is the difference between the solid blue patterns and the multicolor patterns in your Bucilla stamped goods program?
The blue ink is washable- you stitch it first and then wash it so the ink disappears. The multicolor ink is permanent. It will not disappear. The choice is yours for how you like to stitch.
Why shouldn’t I wash my Bucilla tablecloth fabrics before stitching?
Bucilla tablecloth designs are stamped with water-soluble ink. If you wash the tablecloth before you stitch it, you will lose the pattern. When you are finished stitching your design, you will want to wash the piece so the ink markings do not interfere with your beautiful stitch work.
What is needlepoint?
Needlepoint is usually worked on canvas that is printed with the design. You fill in the design areas with yarn. Needlepoint is “full coverage” which means that no canvas is exposed when the design is complete. The design is usually worked up with wool yarn in a continental stitch.
What is the difference between a whipstitch and a slipstitch?
Nothing- they are the same stitch, but people sometimes call them by different names.

Why should you use a hoop when working a needlecraft project?
Using a hoop makes it much easier to complete the stitching. When the fabric is stretched taut, it makes the hole as big as possible, which allows the needle to slip easily in and out of the holes. Hoops also allow for better control and more uniform stitch work.
How do I attach very small pieces of felt to my Bucilla felt projects?
For very small pieces of felt that have to be stitched, use a dot of fabric glue, let dry and then stitch.
