Embroider dazzling designs on any material! Expert Deborah Jones breaks down the theory behind fabric and machine embroidery to help you create a variety designs on infamously tricky fabrics.
Deborah starts off by identifying knit and woven fabrics, and what she calls "un-fabrics": materials that fit into neither category. Then she goes over different choices for stabilizers, needles and density of design, explaining how they work together in successful stitch-outs.
Explore sheer, nylon and densely woven fabrics. Find out how to solve common issues with design, stabilizer and needle choice. After that, watch as Deborah demonstrates how to avoid puckering when hooping quilting cotton, and use self-adhesive stabilizer to hoop and stitch out a vinyl drawstring bag.
Delve into the world of stretch fabrics, including T-shirts, onesie knits and hard-to-hoop moisture-wicking fabric. Discover which designs, density of stitches, stabilizers and needles are best for these materials. Then, watch as Deborah uses the included butterfly design to demonstrate her preferred method for hooping and stitching out a onesie.
