Default stabilizer

Ok first of all let me preface by saying God didn't hand this girl patience..which is not a good thing in the craft world. I searched the blog for the answer to my question but I am too impatient to go through all the entries it brings up. I bought cut away stabilizer and that is what I have been using since I bought my machine. I have tried tear away under t shirts and the same thing happens everytime the tear away tears during embroidery and it pulls the shirt down into the machine and it eats the shirt! So I decided to stick with cut away. Now I cannot find it anywhere. Joann's, hobby lobby, no where in my area. So I decided to look online and I don't see it. Am I crazy? I think the package was green, it was a Sulky roll. The only cut away Joann's has is cut away soft and smooth or something like that which kind of feels like tear away. What I had was coarse like feeling, kinda felt like thick sewing interfacing. Any suggestions?

Default Re: stabilizer

for stretchy stuff, i use iron on interfacing . . . and sometimes then iron on the freezer paper for more stability. the iron on interfacing really has little glue, so it's easy to pull off and then cut around the design.

tonite i'll grab the names of what i use and post them here . . . i know it's not sulky 'cause that's more $ and the sewing store recommended another brand.

hope you can wait til then.
