Choosing fabric for machine embroidery: the role of embroiderer’s experience
When choosing fabric for machine embroidery, always take into account available to you variables (stabilizers, needles, etc.) Don’t switch good-quality stabilizers for various home-made know-hows in chase of the chipper options. One of such tricks is stabilization with the help of some “kitchen stuff” (starch or gelatin solutions). Another such gem is using a printer’s paper instead of proper stabilizers.
We’ve spoken about these know-how’s a lot in our previous posts. However, because they're just too many examples of such “embroidery wisdom” shared around, we think we need to explain why some “can” use it while the others should not.
- Why do people use gelatin and starch solutions in machine embroidery? Theoretically, such solutions (when prepared correctly) can make a lightweight fabric be more agreeable for machine embroidery.
- Why shouldn’t they use such household tricks? Firstly, gelatin and starch solutions, when prepared incorrectly, can turn fabric into the paper. Such brittle fabric will simply break in the hoops. Secondly, such solutions may leave stains on the fabric. Thirdly, when such solutions dry out, particles of their ingredients (gelatin and starch) will break from the fabric and permeate the bobbin case of the machine. Such “pollution” will surely either lessen the quality of the embroidery or lead to constant thread breakage or even problems with the machinery. Thus working with gelatin or starch instead of proper stabilizers can cost you and your machine extra trips to the service center.
