Choosing the Right Stabilizer

Stabilizer Basics

With the multitude of choices now available, choosing a stabilizer can be daunting. Cut away. Tear away. Fusible. Melt away. Wash away. Which do you use?

There is no iron-clad, 100 percent, always-work option. It depends on the stitch count, fabric used, and sometimes the thread, machine, or stabilizer quality.

I've created a video on some of what works for me. The best advice is to use whatever resources you have available to make educated decisions. Experiment and keep an embroidery journal. That way, when you find something that works well, you can duplicate it in the future.
