Stabilizers

Molly and I rode over to Tyler yesterday to investigate the embroidery club at "A Nimble Thimble." Two of your "wacky" buddies (KE & Kath) suggested it. Stabilizer info was my main goal. What kind, how much, what methods of hooping, etc., etc., etc. The instructor, another friend of ours, Brenda, was very informative and helped me pick out a product by the name of OESD Ultra Clean and Tear. I have this product in other forms but was willing to try this. She also mentioned using 505 Spray & Fix on the stabilizer before applying the fabric to it. Above are my first 2 attempts. Too much tension on my hoop produced the "flower" wrinkles, the eagle is much better but I still need to practice. Give me your opinions, please.

I think they look great. I only can spot one or two little wrinkles on the flower. I'm new to ME and still find stabilizers and proper hooping a mystery.

LOOKING VERY GOOD! Annie slides a loose piece of a heavy stablizer underneath--I have tried this and it does help. Ask her about it! I have been practising too. Check out my blog--but wait an hour or so.

I actually have a GREAT dvd from Floriani products that might help you with different stabilizer choices, if you are interested. We showed it at club last night and everyone learned something new (including me :)).
