The floss is punched through the fabric between the woven threads. The weave of the fabric holds the floss to form a loop. Needle is threaded with three strands of embroidery floss, using threader. Set loop length at 3. Transfer design to fabric. Place fabric in hoop (fabric should be taut). Needle is punched in and out fabric with stitches placed close together. Outline design first, then fill in. When done, cut floss close to fabric.
