Hello all,

Anyone got advice/tips for machine embroidering on t-shirt fabric. I need to know things like which needle and stabiliser to use and any other tips people might have.

Blessings

Hi Sarah

I always use Floriani stabilizers....here is the web address for their Stabilizer workbook -
http://www.rnkdistributing.com/search-results.php

This workbook tells you all about their different stabilizers and how to use them, and on what fabrics. I printed it out and I find it very informative, at the end there is a section on 'Choosing the correct needle for the fabric and thread type'

In Canberra there is a Floriani Distributor at Belconnen, Sewing Machine Doctor I think it is called.

Hope this helps.

Thank you Maryann and Sarah. Will look into these possibilities as soon as DH as finished Uni assignments - hopefully in a couple of days it will be my turn to hog the computer!

I just embroidered a little tee for my daughter yesterday. According to the store where I bought my BL, I used cut-away mesh stabilizer, a regular embroidery needle and embroidery thread. It worked very well.

Hi,
I'm partial to fusible mesh stabilizer as it helps prevent stretching the knit in the hoop. A water soluble topping (stabilizer) can help stitching stay on top of the fabric. Not as important on t-shirt knits as on thicker materials like fleece or sweater knits. Use a piece of fusible mesh big enough for the hoop. Then after embroidering you can re-heat the excess stabilizer and unpeel it from the fabric and cutaway the excess.

Nerve wracking at first, but fun once you get more experience. Always good to do a test stitchout on an old t-shirt or scrap of similar knit first .
