Help with embroidery

kelbel827March 6, 2005

I recently purchased a Brother Se270d and have been trying to embroider on towels. I have actually been hooping the towel and pinning on the stabilizer on the bottom and laying disolving stabilizer on the top. I have noticed that occasionally the thread knots up underneath the embroidery. Is there a better way to do this? Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hoop your stabilizer. Use adhesive spray to attach towel to it. As far as the top stabilizer, I use a basting stitch. It secures all 3 layers together. There is a free download for the basting stitch on the Thread Artist site.
