Attaching Fabric to your Frame

Attaching Fabric to your Frame

Attaching your fabric to your frame correctly is the first start to an amazing rug. In this video we show you how to attach your fabric to your frame so you can get Tufting with your cut pile or loop pile tufting machine / tufting gun.

Make sure your carpet tack strips are in the correct direction. Start at the top and hook it in. Then you want to pull down on the bottom part of the fabric and get it super tight. Repeat for the sides, pull out and stretch the fabric.

You want to keep the lines as straight as possible. You can use a variety of fabrics, but we recommend primary tufting material. You Spider Cut Pile Tufting Machine from Tuft Love works with all types of material designed for tufting.
