Stabilizer Know How

CHOOSING THE CORRECT STABILIZER

There are a variety of stabilizers on the market, many of which can be used to stabilize an area when decorating, sewing, embroidering or in construction. In order to find the correct stabilizer for your needs, use the following guidelines.


TEAR-A-WAY

INSPIRA® TEAR-A-WAY

Tears away even easier than regular Tear-A-Way – can use two layers for lightweight fabrics as you tear each layer away so as not to apply too much stress to delicate stitches.

INSPIRA® TEAR-A-WAY LIGHT

Use for lightweight or delicate fabrics. Tears away even easier than regular Tear-A-Way can use two layers for lightweight fabrics as you tear each layer away so as not to apply too much stress to delicate stitches.

INSPIRA® FAST & EASY TEAR-A-WAY

Fast & Easy Tear Away is manufactured from recycled cotton fibers, offering a eco-friendly stabilizer over traditional tear away products. Both weights offer a slight gripping surface to help reduce fabric movement. Fast & Easy tears very easily leaving very little fiber residue even when using 2 -3 layers on more solid filled embroideries. Available in Light Version for more delicate fabrics.


CUT-A-WAY

INSPIRA® CUT-A-WAY

Cut-A-Way is best for very high stitch count designs and recommended for knits and all unstable fabrics especially for hoop embroidery. For designs that have more stitches or have a high concentration of stitches in a small area, it is recommended to float an additional layer of Inspira® Tear A Way between the hoop and the machine for additional support. Also available in Black.

INSPIRA® CUT-A-WAY LIGHT

Cut-A-Way Light is designed for lighter weight fabrics that still need the extra stability for medium to heavy weight stitch counts. In addition, for designs that have more stitches or have a high concentration of stitches in a small area, it is recommended to float an additional layer of Inspira® Tear A Way between the hoop and the machine for additional support.

INSPIRA® FUSIBLE NO SHOW MESH

Inspira® Fusible No Show Mesh Stabilizer is a semi sheet iron on polyester Cut-A-Way that is very soft and ideal for garments and application such as children's clothes, baby garments or anything that will be close to the skin. This stabilizer also eliminates bulk, stiffness and show through of stay-in stabilizers.

INSPIRA® STICK-ON

Can be used with small areas like cuffs, collars or plackets. The stabilizer is hooped and then slit with a pin to remove the paper backing. The fabric sticks to the stabilizer without having to be hooped.

INSPIRA® STITCH POINT CUT-A-WAY

Inspira® Stitch Point Cut A Way improves small stitch details in embroidery designs. Stitch Point Cut-A-Way is made of fibers melted together rather than chemical bonding, creating a unique construction to minimize distortion.


WATER SOLUABLE

Very stable, soft paper-type stabilizer that dissolves in water. Perfect for lace embroidery designs and embroidery on knits.

INSPIRA® AQUA MAGIC PLUS

Very stable, soft paper-type stabilizer that dissolves in water. Adhesive back is perfect for hoop-less embroidery. Perfect for lace embroidery designs and embroidery on knits.

INSPIRA® DISSOLVE-A-WAY

Soluble stabilizer should be hooped on the top of fabric when sewing on napped fabric or knits such as terry cloth towels or sweatshirt fleece. It can also be used alone to sew lace-type designs.

INSPIRA® WATER WORKS

Water Works film is a lighter weight Dissolve-A-Way water soluble stabilizer good to use as a topper. Removes easily with steam, damp sponge or warm water bath. Repeat process until all film is dissolved.


SPECIALTY

INSPIRA® FUSE N' TEAR

Press to the back of fabric. Stabilize fabrics that "move" a lot (knits, very lightweight slippery fabrics). Tears away when complete.

INSPIRA® CLEAR & MELT

Clear N' Melt is a revolutionary advancement in film topping and backing. This film eliminates the use of water for removal because it instantly disappears with a low to medium heat setting on iron
