When embroidering on to material it is extremely important that you use the correct stabiliser for the type of embroidery you are stitching and also take in to account the type of material you're using.
It would be a shame to spend time stitching out an embroidery design only to find the stitches have stretched the fabric and the design does not line up. We are often asked which backing would be best to use for a set embroidery. This is a very difficult question to answer. It depends on the fabric, thread and type of embroidery. There are so many variables to give a solid answer. Experience is the key.! Look for the starter set of stabilizers, it includes a book and 10 samples of different stabilizers to practice on, it's great value and well worth testing with your project.
For the more experienced, we offer a comprehensive selection which I think would satisfy every need where fabric backing for embroidery is required. There is a spray-on basting adhesive or a super melt-a-way stabiliser available too The water soluble stabiliser is a real treat to use if one has not used it before. The stabiliser melts in water and leaves the embroidered lace design in the tub, ready to be removed and dyed off, couldn't be more simple!!.
