ApparelnBags’ Embroidery Tips

Embroidery Tips for Jersey

    • It is recommended to use cutaway stabilizers because jersey knits are very soft and stretchy. This will not only offer better support to the fabric during embroidery but also protect it during wearing and washing. Apart from this stitching will look lean and crisp and due to stretchy knit there is no puckering or dumpling.
    • Some Jersey knits are very sheer, and if you're concerned about the stabilizer showing through the fabric or causing the fabric to drape in an irregular way, you can use No-Show Mesh stabilizer. It’s a sheer stabilizer but strong enough to support the fabric.
    • In order to prevent wrinkling and help keep the fabric from moving during stitching, spray adhesive on stabilizer. Having the cutaway stabilizer adhered to the fabric makes a tight bond, so that all the stitches bound tightly. You can also use an adhesive-backed or fusible cutaway instead of the spray.
