embroidery on collars

annrnDecember 12, 2004

What type of stabilizer do you use on collars? Would water soluble stabilizer just on the top of the collar be enough? I don't like the look of white stabilizer underneath a finished garment. Any suggestions? Thank you.

It would depend on the fabric.
If it is denim I have found that is thick enough to not bother with a stabilzer.
If it is a dark material I use black tear away.
A water soluable is always a good answer especially the new one called Aqua Magic which looks like a regular fibre rather than the clear Solvy.
And then there is the regular tear away....I have a drawer full of various stabilzers about 6 or 8 different ones depending on the project.
(I always stock up when JoAnn's has their 50% off sale).

I would use a tear away sprayed with adhesive spray hooped with my collar placed on top of it.
