The first thing you’ll want to consider is the type of burlap
you’re stitching on. Burlap is available in many fabric stores -- we
found ours near the “utility fabrics” such as Insul-Bright,
interfacing, and plain canvas. It can also sometimes be found in
craft stores back by the embroidery supplies.
The big thing here is the weave. Too coarse and open, like
the burlap on the right, won’t embroider well. Basically, if you can
see through it, you shouldn’t stitch on it.
