Just a few hints I have found helpful 1. Prewash your sweatshirt so any shrinkage will be done before you start. 2. Use a cutaway stabilizer on the bottom and washaway on top. 3.Check your placement several times before you start embroidering-where will the design be , bust line, centered, off to the side, straight etc.? 4. I turn the shirt inside out and slide the hoop on and watch very carefully that all the rest of the shirt is out of the way-you might have to hold it out & away so you don't accidentally stitch a sleeve into your design. If you have an old shirt you might want to stitch something on it to get comfortable, really, they are easy once you get going. Good luck.

Thanks! I need to know if you hoop the shirt or lay it on the stabilizer and baste it down, and what type of stabilizer is best. The shirt is 50-50 % poly/cotton. Any other tips would be appreciated also. I bought one on sale to do a trial, but knowing ahead of time what to do will be great! Hugs and Blessings for your help!!
