Click for a Larger View Sulky Secrets to Successful Stabilizing!: Depending on the project, we will choose a stabilizer that may be placed either in the hoop, under the hoop, or stuck to the hoop; it may be ironed on, pinned in place, or adhered with Sulky KK 2000 Temporary Spray Adhesive. You'll know when you have the right stabilizer topping or backing because stitches lie perfectly without sinking into the fabric, all parts of the design or project are positioned perfectly because the fabric doesn't slip during stitching, and your stitched project doesn't sag, pull or pucker. To achieve that, this book will help you sort out which stabilizer or combination of stabilizers to choose. How, What, When, Why and Where do we use Stabilizers? This is what you will learn in this book from the numerous, diversified, creative projects and tips from over 50 well known industry professionals. We will be discussing practical applications and guidelines - not rules - for usage. Use this book as a source of inspiration, reference and information.
