General Suggestions

Make sure you have the following items at your disposal:

1. Water-soluble fabric stabilizer.

2. High-quality polyester machine-embroidery thread. Regular 40 wt thread is perfect. Just make sure you purchase a quality brand. With lace designs, using strong and NON-stretchy thread is especially important, because they have many stitches, and you would probably prefer to drink coffee or do something fun while your machine is working, instead of babysitting each design for half an hour. Also, thread breaks can cause the laces to unravel later, and stretchy thread may cause your design to deform after laundering.

We've also noticed that it is better to embroider lace designs at a slightly slower speed than at the high speed used for regular designs. The lace comes out more beautifully this way.

3. Properly digitized Free-Standing Lace Designs.

4. Temporary adhesive spray.


1. NEVER resize lace designs. Chances are good that this will ruin them completely. They are very sensitive and precise. While regular design may resize well, a resized lace design will most probably fall apart after you wash away the water-soluble backing.

2. If you are using new supplies (thread, stabilizer), try them out first on one small test design, to see if everything is okay. Stitch it, wash away the water soluble, and dry it, just to be sure that your backing and thread are working well together. Only then continue with your main project.
