I would use WS on top. Do this when ever there is a loop in the fabric (terry, etc.) And I use the thinnest that Ithave on the back. Or more WS
Thanks I wasn't sure about the smooth microfibre
I hope to see you posting a picture of you towel. I know you will have no problem stitching it up with the great advice you have received. These are not "problems" but learning experiences. Or as a former boss of my husband's said, it is an opportunity to excel. Have fun stitching up lots of towels now. Keep asking questions, many others have the same questions but don't ask.
BTW, a better place to ask questions like this is in the Embroidery section. This section is to let folks know about free designs being offered.
Sorry, I wasn't sure where to post my question, thanks
There are posts in the Q&A section to help Cuties know where to post and other helpful information.
I do designs and names on microfibre towels, and i use WSS top and bottom. Spray with water when finished perfect, no problems. Sandra.
Thank you, I have never emb. on the newer Microfibre fabric
Definitely hoop only the tear away stabilizer. I like to then machine baste the towel and the water soluble stabilizer to the hooped stabilizer. Here is a link to some free basting squares. https://www.swakembroidery.com/in...
In fact I have several of these programmed into my memory so that they are always handy. It saves the possibility of hitting pins.
Thank you for the link for the basting stitches.
Good advice from the last 2 comments.
I do exactly as Smokey12 does but I also use a little spray adhesive before pinning the towel to the tear away. Hooping towels can leave quite a mark on the towel and I feel that if the toweling is thick it can damage the hoop. Hope you have a success.
I don't "hoop" mine. I hoop my tear away and then I pin the towel to the stabilizer and stitch. I also use WSS on the top to protect the stitches. Hope this helps.
I use to do WSS top and bottom on towels, etc. but in the long haul of wash/dry/use, the design does not look good. Be sure to use a tearaway as your base so the design stays nice thru use. The WSS on top keeps the loops of the towel from interfering with the thread of the design.
