HOW TO FRAME A TOWEL

STEP 1

Place frame onto framing device. Loosen the frame thumbscrew slightly.

STEP 2

Place towel upside down over frame with the center mark over the middle of the frame. Make sure the band or hem is straight with bottom of framing board.

STEP 3

If the towel is light to medium weight you may need to slip a piece of Tearaway under the fabric prior to inserting frame.

STEP 4

Select a piece of Solvy topping large enough to cover entire design. Place this over frame center mark and push in frame insert.

STEP 5

Make sure garment is straight before pressing frame insert into place. You may pull the garment from side to side in order to pull out excess puckered fabric inside the frame. Tighten thumbscrew. Woven fabric like towels must be taught.

STEP 6

Lift the frame out of the framing device. Handle garment by the outer edges of the frame, so as not to loosen the fabric tension of the framed garment. YouÙre ready to attach frame to the machine.

STEP 7

When the garment has completed sewing. You may pull away the excess Tearaway backing and Solvy topping. Small amounts of residual solvy will simply wash out after its first laundering.
