My new favorite embroidery stabilizer? Stick-N-Washaway™!! I know I’m a bit biased, but it’s truly fantastic. It is a unique product that combines a pressure sensitive adhesive with a water-soluble stabilizer. The stabilizer washes away without placing any stress on your threadwork and leaves no trace of the stabilizer on either side of the project. It is ideal for printed design work and custom embroidery. The newly packaged 8.5″ x 11″ sheets are inkjet safe, sewing machine safe and easy to use in a hand or machine embroidery hoop.

The 8.5″ x 11″ sheets are brand new and available now at your local Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores.

    I was having trouble getting the sheet to feed through my printer. It kept getting jammed. Any suggestions?
