I am amazed at Deborah’s wealth of knowledge when it comes to embroidery.
She has such a grasp on the technical aspect of this complicated process we all love.
I have to admit it was Deborah who taught me about underlay – when to use extra and when a little goes a long way. She taught me about lettering and how to critique a font for embroidery and she has definitely taught me everything I know about stabilizers.
And I’m still learning from her! In fact, when I watched her recent video release on stabilizers, I couldn’t believe how many things I learned. Deborah’s a strong communicator, simplifying complicated thoughts and techniques in clear precise language.
If you still have questions about selecting stabilizers, let me tell you, Deborah has the answers. She wades through all the murky misconceptions about water soluble stabilizers. I know I have a drawer full of water soluble stabilizers and often I don’t know which one would work best for the job at hand. And you’ll love her tips on removing the often stubborn stabilizer.
She tackles stitching on athletic wear – even taming the trendy and challenging Under Armour Microfiber. And she explores the variety of cut-away and tear-away stabilizers. She has such a wealth of experience, I often ask myself how would Deborah stabilize this fabric? Now I don’t have to guess, I can just watch her video and read the printable reference chart for stabilizing 26 different fabrics! I keep that handy guide right next to my stabilizer stash.
