Valley of Shadow – Stabilizing the Canvas

Needlepoint canvas unravels very easily.  The manufactured edges are tightly woven and do not need further stabilization, but the cut edges do.  You can stitch zig-zags either by hand or machine, but I prefer to use masking tape, as you can see here.  The tape is wrapped around the edge.

Stabilized!
