Mine is a singer.
I have used tear away medium weight, but I prefer the sticky back stabilizer. The sticky back really holds the ribbon in place and the edges don't seem to pull as bad. With the sticky back you might have some stabilizer to show on the back/underneath side. Be careful not to tug on the ribbon too much(when removing the stabilizer) as you don't want the edges of the ribbon to pull. I have bought some heavy weight stabilizer that you use on ball caps, but haven't tried it yet.
