used the basting to hold towel in place before put the design on. Makes life so much easier. Very BIG Thank you to the clever cutie who gave us the basting stitches.

Good job - and I always use the "fix" on my machine which is the basting stitch. I seldom hoop anything that I am stitching on. I don't like to see hoop burn on the items.

This is a great technique. For those of you that have the Viking machines, most of them have a fix feature. That will do the same thing. Before stitching out the design press the fix button. I love the feature. It also allows you to check the placement of the design.

Great job! Does someone please have the link?

If you use a wss topper it is much easier to remove the basting stitches and it also helps hold the thread on top of the towel and keep the terry cloth of the towel down. Great job

Guess I am being dense but, basting to what? I am always open to helpful hints.

To the stablizer. You only hoop the stablizer, which is great for the thick pile fabrics.

This is a great idea as towels seem to work out of frame before it is done a lot of times.

This looks like it stitched out great - hope you don't have trouble getting the basting stitches out.

That's what I was thinking. Will them come out ok on towels?

I always cut the basting stitches on the backside, they are easy to cut under the stabiliser.

Yes the basting stitch came out very easy I removed it from the back before I removed the tearaway. the basting is a wide stitch
