PREPARING THE FABRIC

CAUTION
• Use fabrics with a thickness of less than 3 mm
(approx. 1/8 inch). Using fabrics thicker than 3
mm (approx. 1/8 inch) may cause the needle to
break.
Note
• When using layers with thicker batting etc., you can
embroider more attractive finishes by adjusting the
embroidery presser foot height in the embroidery
settings screen.
Press
, and use
[Embroidery Foot Height] in the embroidery
settings screen. Adjust the presser foot height for
thick or puffy fabrics.
• To increase the space between the embroidery foot
and the right side of the fabric, set the [Embroidery
Foot Height] to a larger number.
• In the case of thick terry cloth towels, we
recommend that you place a piece of water soluble
stabilizer on the top surface of the towel. This will
help to reduce the nap of the toweling and result in
more attractive embroidery.
Attaching Iron-on Stabilizers (Backing) to
the Fabric
CAUTION
• Always use a stabilizer material for embroidery
when embroidering on stretch fabrics,
lightweight fabrics, fabrics with a coarse
weave, or fabrics which cause pattern
shrinkage. Otherwise, the needle may break
and cause injury.
a
Iron the iron-on stabilizer material to the wrong side of
the fabric.
• Use a piece of stabilizer which is larger than the
embroidery frame being used.

PREPARING THE FABRIC
Memo
• When embroidering small pieces of fabric that
cannot be hooped in an embroidery frame, use
stabilizer material as a base. After lightly ironing the
fabric to the stabilizer material, hoop it in the
embroidery frame. If stabilizer material cannot be
ironed onto the fabric, attach it with a basting
stitch. After completing the embroidery, remove the
stabilizer material carefully.
c
a
• When embroidering on thin fabrics such as
organdy or lawn, or on napped fabrics such as
towel or corduroy, use water soluble stabilizer (sold
separately) for best results. The water soluble
stabilizer material will dissolve completely in water,
giving the project a more attractive finish.
