    You have to consider the density of the design. The higher density ( more stitches) will need better stabilizers. Also can the stabilizer come out or can you leave it in, WSS vs tear away or cut away, etc. rnkdistributing.com has a stabilizer work book that might help. Check out the you tube videos on stabilizers to also help see what all is available to you. Sometimes you need to double up the sheets. Also make sure you don't stretch the fabric. Most designs sites have information on this. embroidery library for one has lots of tutorials on this. Plus Brother has some.

    The class on Craftsy is very good...have seen it. But rule of thumb is...Stretchy fabrics...cut away, Cotton...tear away....towels...water soluble on top and tear away bottom...sweatshirts/t shirts also water soluble on top using ball point needle and cut away bottom.
    there's a good book called "Embroidery Essentials" that tells you everything you need to know abt hooping, lining up and stabilizer to use, can find it on Amazon second hand. Sometimes it calls for two layers...all depending on the density of stitches being stitched out...
    Also ck out youtubes...I just watched one yesterday under "sewing mastery Husqvarna epic.
    there I think on page 3 of her 96 videos re:epic she talks and shows stablizers and when to use what...I am watching all the videos since I just treated myself to the"Epic"...Yes once you start you get addicted and upgrades will be in your future...I went from a machine that only did 4x4's to the Husq SE which I still have and use but last wk upgraded to Epic for the larger hoops and wifi capability.
