    Hey all! I got the Brother SE 270D sewing/embroidery machine I wanted for Christmas, and for embroidering it says to use stabelizer. I finally found some iron on kind in a bolt like fabric. I was looking for sheets of it! :evil:
    I was trying to iron some of it onto the back of some fabric, and it didn't act like it wanted to iron on. Do you have to iron it a LOT to get it to stick? Should I be using STEAM to iron it on?
    I have never used this stuff, so any help would be great.
    And how in the world do you spell stableizer stabelizer. ?It looks funny. :?:
    TIA!

    Hello, Stabilizer comes in Tear-Away, and Iron on. When you buy it off the bolt it should come with a sheet of instructions. If it's not sticking you may have Tear-Away if it was iron on you would know it would have stuck to the bottom of the iron or on the fabric. Hope this helps.

    hello ladies, i too got a new embroidery sewing machine and have done some practise pieces i've used the tear-a-way stabilizer. I really like the results and is quite easy to use. I purchased a huge piece of stabilizer when i pick up my machine. It must be approx. 24 inches wide and i got 2 meters long. I dont remember what it cost, but the other day i purchased from other store some tear a way and its on a roll. The size is 8" by 25 yards. This only cost me $21.00.

    This stabilizer doesn't have any glue, i just cut a piece a bit larger then the hoop, put the material next on top, put the hoop together and sew away. Then when its done take the hoop apart and slowly tear a way the stabilizer. Great results, easy to use .

    I'd check out a few places before you buy more stablizer. I got 8 inches by 25 yds for 8.95 it's also tear away. I also got some water soulible (can't spell today. You know the dissloving one) I found some lace ordament to make on the embroidery machine using that.

    thats great, i thought you might like to check out my embroidery pattern site. I got this cd with my machine and it has some free patterns and instructions on how to do different embroidery. Like ornaments and some free standing type embroidery, and other good instructions.
    www.stitchitize.com :D Denise.

    If you got your machine from a dealer, they should have classes that will be hepful. They are usually desgined for yur machines and the instructors go the Brand school so they are experts. there are also books and web sites galore with info. just type embroidery in your browser and see where you go. also the public lib is a great resorse and any sewing store.

    I'm new to the board and thought I'd add my 2cents in on this subject. Believe it or not, but coffee filters work great too! I found that info on another board I am on. Just iron it flat and pin into place. Works great!

    I don't have an embroidery machine so this is just a guess:

    wouldn't freezer paper work, too?
