I am trying to monogram some very heavy towels for my son.
The problem I am having is the frame slips and jumps off the towel. How do I solve this....also, what stabalizer do you use for top and bottom of the towel? I have brother allageo. Thanks for any help......JB

RE: embroidery on heavy towels

The secret is not to put the towel in the hoop but to lay it flat on the top. Hoop only the stabiliser.
Place a basting box around your design using Embird or design one yourself in PE design or other digitising program. This then holds the towel in place.
I use a heavy weight stabiliser that you dampen and the towel sticks to it - sorry cannot remember the name of it and the label is long gone. I use Avalon or similar on the top. Hope that helps.
