Need help embroidering on T Shirts!

bigdipperAugust 24, 2010

Me and the wife are fairly new to machine embroidery. We have started a small home operated business and are slowly learning the trade. I have been very successful on caps, back packs, towels, and lots of other items but boy am I having trouble with T shirt material. I know you must stabilize the fabric but the sticky back that I have doesn't seem sticky enough and the fabric pulls away from it fairly easily. So, I need any suggestions on products and any methods that have worked for you. We are very open minded on techniques we just want to be able to be able to embroider on this type of fabric consistently. We have a single head 15 needle machine just to let you know what equipment we have to work with. All help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!

I think you have to use the iron on or sticky as well as the regular stabilizer.....I have just a basic machine but was instructed to do it with 2 stabilizers and it does a great job.
