One or more layers in a hoop for computerized embroidery. On knits use a Solvy topper, too. Use Soft 'n Sheer for trapunto techniques. Spray with KK 2000 to make it into a "sticky-type" stabilizer to embroider small areas like collars, cuffs, pockets, etc., that aren't large enough to fit in a hoop. When you are done stitching, carefully cut away excess stabilizer without cutting the fabric it is stabilizing. Trim close to the stitching to minimize stabilizer show-through on white or light colored fabrics, or use a pinking shears.
