I still get puckers but usually in an area that is heavily embroidered.
I have less probles now I iron the fabric then I use a washable glue sick and run a strip on all 4 sides then smooth the material onto the stablizer place top part of hoop on it and pick up the whole thing and place in the bottom part of hoop and tighten
Here are two images of a fairy pattern. I have the front and back included. Here is my process.
1) Spray fabric with heavy starch and press it.
2) Apply 1 piece of Sulky "Totally Stable" iron on tear away stabilizer.
3) Add 1 layer of a stiff tear away stabilizer.
4) Hoop fabric and stabilizer so fabric is taut.
5) Embroider :)
When finished remove both tear away stabilizers from around the design. I then repress the design from the back with a pressing cloth. If needed apply more starch.
I hope this helps :-)

That came out great I'll try starching first now to and see if it helps thanks for the tip I'm still figuring this stuff out
Your welcome and thank you!
How large is your hoop? I normally use a 5x7 or a 7x14. Always use the smallest hoop you can get away with. I am working hard at producing a large variety of products. Learning how to get everything correct is a time consuming process.
Those are lovely, lucky lady :D :D you do nice work
Good job ceanna, love the new embroideries!
Thanks for the embroidery tip cpeloqui, love your embroidery, too!
This is just what I need! Where did you get the pattern? This is lovely.
I get 95% of my patterns from emblibrary.com they always come out nice and they have great sales all the time. These 4 came from annthegran.com on their freebie list
