SULKY Secrets to Successful Embroidery and More! by Joyce Drexler.
In the first section of the book, look for the answers to these provocative questions ... What, When, Where, Why and How? to use each Sulky Thread and Sulky Stabilizer to achieve professional-looking results in all of your embroidery projects.
Of course, we have included general instructions on hand, free-motion, machine-fed and computer embroidery as well as an update on supplies, equipment and techniques to make embroidery as easy and as successful as possible.
In the largest section, look for exciting, stimulating, creative Projects to make for those you love, as well as home decorating projects using Sulky Threads, Stabilizers, Puffy Foam™, Iron-on Heat Transfer Pens and KK 2000"M Temporary Spray Adhesive. There are a variety of beginner-to-advanced projects plus Tips from talented "Sewing Stars" and many Quick Projects, as well as Sources for hard-to-find patterns, notions, etc., used in the projects.
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.
