Master-class by: Irina Lisitsa
Dense adhesive water soluble stabilizer is your first helper when it comes to embroidering lace and working with delicate fabrics: chiffon, organza, thin knitwear etc. A new machine embroidery stabilizer Solufix is different from the water soluble stabilizer we know, because of an additional layer of adhesive. It helps working with materials that cannot be hooped and also can be easily removed afterwords. An adhesive layer of Solufix secures the fabric while the embroidery process, and the water soluble part goes off by rinse with a warm water once the embroidery is completed. In this master-class I'll show you how to hoop a water soluble stabilizer Solufix.

Link the marks with the lines.
Cut the stabilizer along the lines you just draw.
Put the stabilizer onto the outer ring of the hoop with the paper layer on top.
Press the stabilizer into the hoop slightly.
Put the inner ring on the top of it and press it inside to secure the stabilizer.

Link all the marks together.
With the sharp edge of the scissors cut only the paper layer of your stabilizer.

There can be one or two layers of different size.
