    I went ahead and tried a couple of labels. I used grosgrain ribbon and tear away sticky stabilizer. I am really happy with the way they turned out. Very little pulling in and the stabilizer doesn't feel stiff when finished. I started out with a regular hoop and it was really tough getting the stabilizer in it, so I think the next go round I'll try it with my magnetic hoop.

    Can you post a picture of what the labels look like? I'm very curious as this might keep me from ordering custom labels for my purses. Thanks!

    Trouble hooping the sticky stabilizer?? OH Please, don't say you were removing the paper first before hooping. hahaA friend & I were talking embroidery with another lady--she said she hated the sticky stabilizer and refuses to use it. Said it was so hard to hoop--it kept sticking to everything and she couldn't even get the hoops together! We've discussed how sad she had no instruction about stabilizers.

    Or you could hoop a piece of tear away or WSS in the hoop and then cut the sitcky the size of the inside of your hoop, spray the WSS with 505 or something like that. lay the sticky down and then the ribbon. You can buy the WSS at JoAnns on the bolt and use a coupon and it's alot cheaper than the sticky stuff. Or you can not use the sticky and just go with WSS (might have to use 2 layers) or tearaway and have the spray hold down the ribbon. Which would be even cheaper too.

    I haven't used grosgrain ribbon for labels but did try satin ribbon. I did not have much success with that at all. I had alot of pull and shrinkage....However, after doing much research and purchasing a tiny font instead of trying to reduce a font I had I am hoping I could still use satin ribbon. There are many good tutorials out there in internet land that people rave about. So if you are wanting more information just google, 'making your own embroidered labels'.
    I am truly Blessed by the Best!!

    HELP ! My husband has said that he will buy me an embroidery machine and the one that is tempting me is the Janome Memory Craft 350E. Does anyone out there in quiltingboard know anything about it?

    But it will become what you make it.

    I have a Viking Designer Diamond and a Pfaff Creative Sensation.......and absolutely LOVE to combine the machine embroidery with quilting ( altho I do a ton of embroidered objects like bibs, kitchen towels, monogrammed bath towels, monogrammed shirt cuffs, etc.).....such a creative outlet! Check most recent post for the fairy frost baby quilt that I added on 2-7-13 for pictures of one of my projects.........

    You guys are too funny! I actually left the paper on the sticky so that wasn't the issue. The problem is that it is so stiff with the paper making it hard to hoop. Once it's in there, it's there!
    I have tried the WSS for labels, but it doesn't seem to hold very well. I had to hoop the ribbon along with the WSS. I did get lots of pulling and shrinking, but I also did not adjust the density of the design.
    I will try and figure out how to post the pics.
