Embroidery Supplies

Below is a short list of products I use for Embroidery 

01

Stabilizer is used when embroidering on anything. Different stabilizers are used for different types of fabrics and materials.  I typically use Tear Away Stablizer with a layer of Polymesh Stabilizer this (for me) creates a beautiful embroidery experience on the garment. I use this in addition to water soluable stabilizer when embroiderying on plush fluffy fabric materials such as minky fabrics and fleece jackets/vests. 

03

Embroidery Thread

Here is where you want to invest in the best. 

I use Brothread, Madiera, Threadart and Allstitch to supply my embroidery thread and Sewing Threads. 

05

Applique scissors are used to finely cut around your applique fabric when embroidering an applique design.  I love these scissors - there are several to choose from that would fit your needs. It is all about preference. 

02

Spray adhesive provides a mild tack which is helpful in apply the garment to the stabilizer. I usually use 505 Fabric Spray and really like it over basting sprays and other brands. 

04

Cutting mats are important for your craft room but you can start with a small or large one, your choice.  I started off with a small one due to the small space I had at the time I first started, but now have 3 large mats. If space is limited Amazon had a great cutting mat that folds away when not in use. 

06

There are several different types of rotary cutters you can choose from. I initially began using Fiskars brand but quickly did not care for it. I changed to Ofla brand and love it. Again it is all in what you like.
