FAQ – Jute fabric

Q: what’s the best way to remove fibers from the jute surface?

ONE ANSWER:
One of our sample stitchers recently submitted this suggestion and I think it’s so good I need to pass it on. After gluing the edges of the piece, she uses 2″ wide clear shipping  tape across the width, front and back, row by row, and it does pick up most of the loose fibers. Some, of course, remain but they do come off during the first few times of stitching. Where fibers collect between warp and weft, she uses a fingernail to pull them off.

Do you have any suggestions to add? I would love to hear from you on how you approach a stitching project.
