EZ Stitch Quilted Scroll Rod Covers
If you have watched any of my other EZ Stitch Videos you know that I recommend placing the EZ Stitch Tape for Fabric on the front of the fabric. I do this so when I scroll it up the front is protected. After all the front is what we are all going to be looking at for year to come and we want it to be as clean and fuzz free as possible.
How to get really tight tension when using the EZ Stitch Scroll Frames
I like super tight tension and with the EZ Stitch Scroll Frames you can have whatever tension you like. Once you have the fabric scrolled up on the rods tighten all 4 knobs. Then push down the middle of the fabric, This will cinch up the fabric on each of the Scroll Rods, making it wrap tighter around them.
Scroll the fabric back up around each rod tighten the knobs down and push down in the middle again. Do this until you have the tension that you like.
So by scrolling the fabric this way if anything gets dirty or has some wear on it, it will be the backside of the fabric. Now how do we keep the back clean? That is where our EZ Stitch Quilted Scroll Rod Covers are used.
EZ Stitch Quilted Scroll Rod Covers are perfect to protect your needlework from dirt, stains and wear. Simply slide the elastic over the top and bottom of your scroll rods. Each Cover has a nice stretchable and durable elastic so you can slide each end over the side bar and the knob. A relatively new feature we have add is a tension toggle. We want your Scroll Rod Cover to be as secure as possible when wrapped around your scroll frame. So this tension toggle helps if you need a tighter or looser tension.
This feature is great for when your Scroll Rods are longer then your fabric. You want the Scroll Rod Covers to cover the width of your fabric. So if your fabric is 16” but you have it on 20” Scroll Rods you could use 18” or even 20” Scroll Rod Covers. By adjusting the tension of the elastic with the toggle and making sure the width of the fabric is covered you have lots of size options to choose from.
EZ Stitch Quilted Scroll Rod Covers are 3" Wide and are available in sizes from 6” up to 36”. Larger sizes are available upon request.
One of my favorite features of our Scroll Rod Covers how I can set up my Scroll Frame. I use a Retractable Scissor Keeper by sliding that on to the elastic and attaching my scissors they are now always at hand and I never lose them in the couch cushions.
I also clip my highlighter to the elastic as well. I like to make a working copy of my pattern so I don't ruin the original. Then as I stitch I will mark off what I have completed. With my highlighter attached to the elastic of the Scroll Rod Covers it is always at hand as well.
Now where to place my pattern? I will take my copy of the pattern and usually fold it up to the area that I am stitching. And either use a hair clip to clip it right to my scroll frame. Or most often I use my NuFlex LED Light to hold it in place. This not only holds my pattern where I want it but I can also place the light right where I need it over my stitching.
