Cleaning Needlepoint Pillows, Art, and Accessories
Test for Colorfastness Before Cleaning . If you decide to clean any hand-stitched craft piece yourself, before doing anything you must check the fibers for colorfastness to prevent dyes from running and ruining your piece. Testing is simple. If there are large blocks of color, wet a piece of white cloth with cold water and gently rub it over each different color in your piece.
