Another Look at Evertites UPDATED

Here's another look at how Evertite stretcher bars are used. Mary is using them for an embroidery project, not needlepoint, so her misting tip won't work for us but it is still a fun article about the versatility of Evertites.

UPDATE:  Ruth Schmuff has written an introduction to Evertites with lots of great photos.  Please note she does not mention that you should not secure your canvas in the corners when you use Evertites.  That is the area that expands, so tacking or stapling the corners will tear the canvas.

Creating Tiny Beaded Scallops

Today's finishing tutorials are from Mary Corbet. In the link below she teaches how to create a simple row of scallops using beads. The second link shows a somewhat more complex row of equally pretty beaded scallops.  Quick, easy, pretty--what more can you ask?!
