Hi there,

I am trying to embroider a rubber-type piece of "material".  I really don't like to call it material, because it is about 1/8" thick.  (For those that know about horse equipment, it is for a brow band)  When I try to embroider it, the thread "sinks" into the piece and doesn't come back out.  Hard to explain, but I know it can be done, we have a catalog from another vendor that does this. 

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

I have done wetsuits that were a rubberized 'fabric' and found putting a piece of wax paper under (VERY old trick) provided some lubricant for the needle so it sewed better. If you find things sinking I would suggest solvy or some water soluble topping to hold the stitches out of the fabric.
