embroidery on collars

Posted by annrn (My Page) on

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.
