There are all sorts of decorating life hacks that can be done with a nicely wrapped embroidery hoop. I've seen photo displays, clocks, sun catchers, tool racks, mobils, trivets made of wine corks stuffed in a hoop. I use one with pulled lace for hanging earrings. As far as needlework is concerned using a fabric wrap on a hoop does wonders! The extra tension is nothing short of remarkable. No matter how delicate or thin your choice of fabric, it will be drum tight! However essential I think it is to use wrapped hoops, there is no denying it is a big pain in fanny to wrap them! That's why I make bunches of hoops at once. I decided to list my personal collection for anyone whom might want to save themselves the hassle. I buy my hoops retail so I can examine each hoop for imperfections, so they are perfect before I wrap them. I'm not correcting near circle, hiding huge gaps; these are hoops that exceed my person standards. Then I wrap them with cotton fabric. I tac in multiple places on the hoop for extra tight consistency. I prefer fun fabrics that compliment my palette rather then detract from it. I hope you like variety!
