We recommend dry cleaning for the optimum care and continued lustre of your embroidery.

To press your embroidery after completion, place embroidery face down, with the right side on a towel. Press carefully on the wrong side being careful not actually press your stitching. Smooth the surrounding fabric.

Due to changes in anti-pollution laws, certain dye-setting agents can no longer be used. This means it is more difficult to set dyes. If slight "bleeding" occurs, simply continue to rinse with cool water until all residue has gone.

A little bi-carb soda or vinegar helps in final rinse to maintain lustre.
