  • Step 1Loosen the screw at the top of the embroidery frame to separate the 2 frames.
  • Step 2Place the outside frame to the side, leaving you with just the smaller, inside frame.
  • Step 3Position the inside frame under the material so it hangs over the edges.
  • Step 4Push the outside frame over the top of the material and inside frame, sandwiching the fabric in place.
  • Step 5Start tightening the screw at the top of the frame to hold everything in place.
  • Step 6Pull the fabric taut as you tighten.
  • Step 7Your frame should have the fabric secured in place and stretched tightly like a drum. Now it’s time to start embroidering!
