All embroidery needs some form of stabilizer that can be
easily removed. Use a stabilizer appropriate to the fabric
and project. Common forms of stabilizer for embroidery
sewing are fusible, adhesive, tear-away, heat-away or
The fusible type is recommended for stretch fabrics and
fabrics that might shrink. Adhesive type is great for
velvets or other napped fabrics that would be damaged if
secured in the hoop. The non adhesive types should be
used when embroidering fabric which cannot be ironed
or for areas which are difficult to iron.
Most stabilizers should be used on the wrong side of
fabric. More than one layer may be required. Wash-away
stabilizer may be placed on top of fabrics like toweling so
the loops lie flat under the embroidery.
For any type of stabilizer, prepare a piece larger than the
embroidery hoop and place it in the hoop so that the
entire piece can be fastened within.
