To starch thread crochet things use liquid starch, mix it with 1/2 water and put it into a spray
bottle. This solution makes a nice stiffness to most thread crochet projects. (the liquid starch,
is better because you can control the stiffness of your crochet by the amount of water you add
to the starch solution). Use a flannel sheet to lay crochet on, because the flannel grips to the
crochet and helps hold it in place, this way it doesn't take very little, if any pinning. I spray
the crochet with the starch solution, until very damp and then I lay it on the flannel sheet and
press with fingers from the center out on the project. Then I wait for it to dry.
Use rust proof pins for pinning crochet. Have you ever stored your crochet and found little
rust spot on it ruining it and wondered where they came from, they come from little slivers of
metal that comes off the pins onto the crochet and then the slivers of metal rust onto your
crochet while its being stored.
