2014 06 23 cutaway stabilizer trick

I tried a new stabilizer cutaway on my last project and cut away while the design still was in the hoop - whoopie it was so much easier to do. Will have to remember that next time working with cutaway

It's also easier to remove water soluble topping while still hooped.

I too cut the jumps while in the hoop, but never thought to do the cutaway that way......thanks for a useful tip!

I find it easier also to clip the thread tails while still in the hoop.

ohhhh...but I bet you need to be careful not to cut the fabric...especially when you are starting....

I never use cutaway but I always take the stitch and tear off while the design is still in the hoop - keeps the whole thing firm.
