Stabilizer Tip – Perfect Stick Stabilizer & Adhesive Sew & Wash


In addition to our Sew Vac Outlet branded stabilizer, we now carry Floriani products.

Perfect Stick Tear AwayWith Floriani Perfect Stick, embroidery in almost any area is achievable! Enjoy quality stitching with no residue build up or gummy needles. Floriani Perfect Stick is ideal for hard to hoop items such as bulky towels, backpacks, collars, napkin corners, or socks. Also use for fabrics that can be damaged by the hooping process. You can prevent Hoop Burn. embroidery on  fabrics like leather, velvet, ultra-suede and satin easily. With Perfect Stick you will enjoy the stability of a firm yet flexible stabilizer that will support all types of embroideries on most fabrics.

A similar stabilizer is Adhesive Sew & Wash. The difference is that Adhesive Sew & Wash dissolves in warm water. It does not tear away. Adhesive Sew & Wash is sold under the Sew Vac Outlet brand.

When using either stabilizer, I like to cut the stabilizer about 1″ larger than my inside hoop. I peel off the paper from the entire piece. Then, I place the inside hoop on top of the “sticky” side of the stabilizer and wrap it around the edges of the hoop. This provides for a no slipping of the stabilizer in the hoop. Place the item to be embroidered on top of the sticky stabilizer.
