Help! Performance fabrics + embroidery = warping and wrinkles

Recommended Posts

Did sombody find out how to digitize for this material? I'm having troubles with a filled circle. The digitizing company we are using has no idea about digitizing for this material, so I had to do edits to the design, changing the understitches and the fills, but still can't get it right. Any tip about digitizing this (we've got lot's of tips about hooping) would be really appreciated! Attached is my embroidery file for this design. Thank you so much!!!

Are we talking about Spandex or something like this? A very stretchy material. Because if you are what you should do is get some spray adhesive and attach your stabilizer this way. You must hoop tought but do not stretch your fabric. It is often best to use 2 layers of stabilizer also use some spray starch to help prevent stretching.
