How to attach the EZ Stitch Tape to the Fabric

One of the best thing about the EZ Stitch Scroll Frames is the tape.  The EZ Stitch Tape is has a unique design which allows you to remove and reattach your project in seconds.

The EZ Stitch Scroll Rods already come with tape applied to them.

Then the EZ Stitch Tape for Fabric will be placed across each end of your fabric.  The EZ Stitch Tape has a very sticky back and is not re-useable. So each new project gets new Tape for Fabric.

How to attach The Tape for Fabric:

Attach the EZ Stitch Tape to the top and bottom of your fabric. To ensure you have even tension top and bottom, fray the edge of the fabric until you get a straight line.


Cut the tape the same width as your fabric. 

Then place the fabric tape a few fabric threads above that straight line. This tape is very sticky on the back, so be careful as you place it as it is not removable.

Then place the fabric on the Scroll Rods and scroll it up. Your fabric now has even tension through out. Best of all, it is kept clean and wrinkle free.

To tighten the tensions of your fabric: 

Once you have the fabric scrolled up on the rods and to tighten the tension of your fabric, push down the middle of the fabric. This will cinch it up on the rods, making it wrap tighter around them. Do this until you have the tension that you like.  Then once you have completed the project, you will cut the tape off your fabric.

I'm curious, I see your fabric rolls up on the inside, i always put mine on the outside. Is there a right or wrong way of doing this?

I have a blog on this exact question. There is no right or wrong but I place the EZ Stitch - Tape for Fabric on the front of my fabric. I do this so when I scroll it up the front is now protected. After all the front is what we are all going to be looking at and we want to be as clean and fuz free as we can get it.

So by scrolling my fabric this way if anything gets dirty or has some wear on it, it will be the backside. I also use the Scroll Rod Covers to help eliminate any dirt or wear that might happen. But by scrolling it up this way I ensure that the front is kept clean and protected. Here is a link to that Blog and Video.
