Stretching

One Off Needlework talks about how they "stretch" canvases sent to them for finishing. (We call it blocking.)  Personally I think stitch tension has a lot to do with whether a piece done all in basketweave needs blocking, whether it was worked on a frame or not.  However, it's my impression that British needlepointers rarely use a frame, so that may be involved here, too.
