A 1.5 oz “wet laid” biodegradable adhesive non woven stablizer With the best and most needle friendly adhesive used in sewing – to date!
It is used in "hoopless" or clamp type embroidery applications for hard to hoop items such as heavy towels, CD cases, backpacks, cuffs, collars, socks etc.
With Eco Stick embroidery in every area is possible.
It is used for fabrics that can be marred by the hooping process to avoid hoop "ring burn" like velvet, suede, ultra suede, some leathers , satins. and other
Eco Stick utilizes the latest and the most needle friendly adhesive available. It will avoid gummy build up and residue on needles and hoops which can lead to excessive thread breaks.
Please note that Eco Stick will support medium density stitch counts up to
Approximately 6,000-8,000 stitches. For higher and more dense stitch counts just add another layer of tearaway - hooped or "floated" under the hoop.
Please note: With adhesive stabilizers we always suggest that embroiderers slow down their machines about half of normal and use titanium needles and or silicone spray wiped on the needles.
OMG!!!! This stuff (Eco Stick) is the best thing since sliced bread!! I have been struggling with hooping fleece baby blankets for years. I used it this morning for the first time and hooping was easy using the sticky paper and my design is as soft as the blanket. Thank you. I read other people's comments on the PR600 Yahoo group and went from there. Your are a genius.
I have used my favorite, the Eco-Stick, on a variety of things, but found the best use I have for it is on light weight horse blankets, sheets and coolers--it allows re-positioning, and holds well to the various fabrics used in those items, but doesn't leave a sticky residue, which is great when the items being embroidered go directly on the animal, due to it neither sticks to the hide in that area, nor does it attract undue amounts of lose hair on the back."Tena, Digital Pens & Needles
"Just want to let you know that I tried the Eco Stick sample. I love it! I used it on a towel. It stuck perfectly and the towel removed easily without pulling any of the terry. The monogram stitched out nicely. I'll definitely use this product."
"I just wanted to let you know that I had a chance to use the Eco Stick on several different projects last week. I immediately noticed it is thicker than the brand I currently use and it seemed to sew out really well ˆ no problems with gumming up the needles!" Pascale Randolph - The Embroidered Touch
Thank you so much for helping me with my order for the EcoStick 920 which was developed by Fred Lebow. I was fortunate to be able to test stitch for him with using this stabilizer. It is far more satisfactory than any other "sticky" I have used. With most sticky stabilizers, after a few stitches, you begin to hear the thumping noise from your machine where the needle is "gummy" and is beginning to drag the stabilizer up when it stitches. No with this one! I have been anxiously waiting the time when I would be able to purchase it. It is wonderful!! No gummy needles and it holds my towels (and anything else I have used it on) exactly where I want it while I am doing my embroidery. I would highly recommend it to anyone because I know they will be as pleased as I was when they used it.
Thanks for your prompt attention to my order."
No Show Nylon Mesh
& ALMOST INVISIBLE!
Show mesh is a nylon mesh stabilizer
with a embossing pattern. It is more multi-directionally
stable than previous versions. Therefore it will hold more
stitches per single layer than the regular perpendicular
patterned mesh leading to better and tighter registration
or definition per single layer. If you add a mid weight
tearaway as a sandwich it can hold an even higher stitch

infant items and micro fiber apparel.

fusing the stabilizer to the back of the garment, the fabric
will not move or stretch leading to better registration.
The stabilizer is temporarily attached to the entire area
where the embroidery will be stitched eliminates the use
of messy spray adhesives which only "spot" tack
and allow shifting of the fabric and are quite messy leaving
residue on needles hoops and machine parts
We use a low melt fusible - 260 F so as not to scorch or
shrink your fabric.
When you are finished with your embroidery, re-fuse the
edges- peel back and trim around your design.

the need to double the layers -- using one diagonally, and
the other horizontally. I am thinking that the new diagonal
no show will probably alleviate the need for the second
layer (example -- t shirts, polos, etc.), as the diagonal
is incorporated into the one layer. I have always loved
using "no-show" mesh products, and expect that
this one will be especially good for many applications."

Cloud Cover Stitch is not a stabilizer.
Cloud Cover has
a very unique multi directional stretch. It bonds at a moderate
temperature with your fabric but will in no way adversely
affect the bulk or drapability of your garment.
It is also used
on silks and satins in order to arrest any unraveling or
shredding while sewing.
just wanted to let you know that I placed a small order
for a few different things. I'm always looking for ways
to save. I'm particularly interested in the Cloud Cover
and ordered the cut sheets in white and black. Since most
of my designs are for babies and children, I'm often asked
about what to use on the inside of garments. This will put
me in a position to make a recommendation based on actually
usage (and I'm sure my grandson who is 6 months old won't
mind if I use it on his shirts!). I also order some of the
press and tear for my daughter who makes custom skatewear
for children and has been looking for something like that
so that she can stabilize the spandex used in a skate dress
Thank you again for arranging to send the samples. This
packet was a wealth of information."
I promptly opened the Cloud Cover, both colors, and have used both on orders today. I really like the easy-fusing results ... can already tell it's going to work well on my embroidery jobs! Thanks again!!

tearaway, which is completely biodegradable,
is now available from Cotswold Industries. Tearaway
Washaway is composed of half water-soluble and half
non-soluble fibers. Excess stabilizer is torn away
and any remnants are dissolved as soon as the garment
is washed. However, underneath the stitches, the threads
and non-soluble fibers intertwine to continue to support
the embroidery. So registration remains tight and

have to say that I have never liked sticky stabilizers...my
machine always broke threads and the needles gummed
up. I finally had a chance to use the sample Andy sent
me. It worked like a charm. I stitched a name on a knitted
dog sweater that is for a chichihua. It was so small
that I needed to use my smallest fast frame. I was having
a hard time hooping it until I remembered the sample.
It worked like a charm! Thanks! I may have to place
another order soon to have that for those hard to hoop
