Craft Tip of the Day~~ Embroidering High Count Designs

21 Mar

Have you ever tried to embroider a high count design and the design pulled and tuckered.   Here is a cheep tip….  Put waxed paper over the top of your design.   The waxed paper will take all the pulling and your design will stitch out beautifully!!  Once your design is complete just pull all the extra waxed paper off.  It will tear away easily.

    Are you using wax paper in place of water soluble stabilizer?

    Not sure on the wear of the needle from the wax on the paper maybe ok to use in a pinch but stabilizer is made from fibers not wax I wouldn’t use regularly

    Using this, the wax paper is under the embroidery threads and could create a problem when the items is washed and dried. I think it would be better to just float a piece of regular stabilizer beneath the hoop.

    My Dealer recommended Silicone Spray on the fabric. It’s non-stain, odorless, colorless, no greasy or oily film, waxless, and heat stable.

    I’ve been using wax paper, for awhile, the only downside is it will dull your needle. But it does work great, and easy to remove.
