Q: Hi I’ve just completed the very lovey reindeer but when I come to fitting it into my display hoop is very loose and I can’t seem to work out a way for it not to fall out. Would very much appreciate any ideas.
A:Hi Tina, thanks for messaging! This can sometimes happen with the display hoops, so I'm glad you asked! Once the back is secured and it's ready to slot into the outer display hoop, you can space out some French Knots (maybe a couple of inches apart) on the really thin edge - this...view more should be enough to add the extra width that the hoop needs to stay in place! Let me know if you have any other questions :)
Q: Hi I’ve got the set of three Xmas hoops. There’s only two cards with all the colours on so can’t work out which gold goes where. Cannot tell from pattern or photo which gold thread to use on the reindeer body or antlers. Could you tell me which is which please? Metallic gold...view more thread (and brown)for the antlers and dark gold non metallic for the body?view less
A: Hi Lynne, thanks for your question! Yep, that's right - metallic gold and brown for the antlers; then sandy/non-metallic gold for the body. I hope that helps - and let me know if you have any other questions, happy to help :)
