Monday Madness!!

Okay, so here’s the deal. We’re pretty excited these days. What, you might ask, are we so excited about? For starters, we’ve got a new blog and we’re not ashamed to admit that we’re having a blast with it! We’re loving Pinterest (who isn’t loving it??!) and are pretty darn thrilled about the new look for Facebook pages. We added a whole slew of great things to the website too – project cards, educational cards, a find us page, and we’re adding new projects every week! All that aside, we’re excited to report that we at Pellon® are constantly expanding our line! We’ve got brand new products to share with you and will host a small giveaway here on this blog on the first Monday of every month to celebrate.

Today, we’re all about embroidery! Adding to our already popular embroidery backings sold by-the-yard such as Sol-u-Film® and Wash-n-Gone™, we are excited to be introducing an extended line of packaged embroidery backings.  Our new products include Fuse-n-Tear™Soft-n-Stay™, Sol-u-Film® Lite, Stick-n-Tear™, Stitch-n-Tear® Lite and regular Stitch-n-Tear®. Seriously… if you’re into embroidery, we’ve got something for you!!

For this, our very first Monthly Monday Madness Giveaway, one lucky winner will get a package of Fuse-n-Tear®. The package includes 12” x 12 yards of product, so just think of the possibilities!

    I kind of find the directions on the Sol-U-Film Lite package to be rather vague… Can someone explain if I can iron it on my project or not? I don’t want to risk ruining the piece or my iron if this is bad. If it can’t be ironed is it really just supposed to be pinned on?

      Hi Kelly:) –
      I emailed you, but wanted to post a response here just in case… This comes directly from our fabulous interfacing expert:

      Sol-u-Film Lite is an all temperature, water-soluble stabilizer. It is NOT an iron-on. You would use this on the back of your fabric to help support the fabric when stitching. You might also use this on the top of napped fabrics such as terrycloth and velour to keep the stitching from sinking into the nap. In order to use, this would need to be either put in an embroidery hoop with your fabric or pinned to the fabric. Once the stitching is completed, you can gently tear away or cut away the excess and remove any traces by submerging in water for 30 seconds to 2 minutes.

      The Sol-u-Film Lite cannot be ironed on to your fabric (it will melt on your iron), however, if you want to make a liquid stabilizer or temporary adhesive you can dissolve 1 yard of the Sol-u-Film Lite in 8 ounces of warm water and brush on to fabric. You would then put your second fabric on the back and iron with a hot, dry iron for a temporary adhesive. Again, once sewn, you can then immerse in water and the Sol-u-Film Lite will wash out.

      Hope this helps!

    I already like your pg on fb, and will have to keep up with your pgs more, you have lots to offer readers.

    I am now following your blog. Love your products, and have been using them for years. The fuse and tear would be great for applique on quilts, but I wondered if it would work for an embroidery machine too? It would be wonderful to win a roll of fuse and tear to play with : ^) Thanks for the giving away products.

    I already “Like” Pellon on Facebook and have started following on Pinterest. Just added Pellon Projects to follow! Now to get to my projects!

    I just bought some plain t-shirts and want to embroider small dog-themed patterns on the fronts. Pellon is awesome!

  7. VickiT says:

    Definitely looks like a great product with many uses. I’d love to try it to see how it works as compared to another brand I have been using for my machine embroidery. For items that I cannot hoop for fear of causing hoop burn to the product or those which are just too thick to hoop, or those items which are almost impossible to hoop (newborn onesies for example) the description of this sounds like it would be a wonderful product to use. I could hoop the Fuse n Tear and then lay the item I am embroidering over the top of it and do a quick fusing of the item to the Fuse n Tear then embroider as usual. Then when done I could just unhoop and enjoy my new creation with no hoop burn of potential of breaking a hoop.
    I have a lot of baby items right now that I need to do right now such as onsies as well as bibs that need to be done and this appears to be an excellent replacement of the stabilizer I’ve been using.

    I do love using Pellon and it’s the first brand I buy when I go to JoAnn’s or another fabric store to purchase the type of products Pellon makes. I haven’t used any with my machine embroidery however as I did not realize they were available as I’ve always bought those products from my embroidery machine dealer. Now it appears I have new choices which can be a very good thing when it comes to cost.

    I had to look up what this stuff does. Although, with the the name, I should have known. I think it’d be good for embellishing plain t-shirts with your machine.

  9. Sheryl says:

    Sounds like Fuse-n-Tear would prevent my fabrics from stretching when being hooped for embroidery. Wonderful! I could use that all the time!

  10. ritainalaska says:

    this would help keep my applique blocks square … and i have blocks cut and pieces drawn and ready to cut. would love to win this fuse-n-tear and give it a try. thanx for the opportunity to do so.

  11. Cheryl says:

    Pellon products are the absolute best! My mother introduced me to Pellon many, many moons ago when she was teaching me to sew. Haven’t used anything other than Pellon products since! I would love the opportunity to use this Fuse-N-Tear product!

  12. Becky Greene says:

    I am a quilter so I would love to use this product to add some special embroidered touchs to my quilts! Thanks for the chance to win!

  13. lisabethjean says:! I would love to use Fuse-n-Tear on my embroidery projects. It looks like it would be perfect for “raggy: applique.

  14. thecraftyunicornquilting says:

    I have a brand new embroidery program so there are tons of machine applique projects I would use it in.
    I already lke Pellon on Facebook and am now following on pinterest, and have added your blog to my reader.
