Stabilizer Spotlight: Medium Tear-Away

Medium Tear-Away Social

What is Medium Tear-Away?

Medium Tear-Away is a stabilizer that tears neatly away from embroidered areas.  Choose Tear-Away when stitching on tightly woven fabrics like cotton, denim, vinyl, leather, terry cloth, or anything else not stretchy!

Tear-Away is wonderful for designs with large, open areas. (It can be a pain to pick Tear-Away out of tiny spots!) But for larger areas, it's nice to simply tear the excess stabilizer away.  

Why Use Medium Tear-Away?

Tear-Away is ideal for projects where you don't want any stabilizer to remain behind. (For example, you wouldn't want stabilizer on a bath towel!) Medium Tear Away is especially great for medium-to-high stitch count designs (approximately 15,000 to 25,000 stitches). 

This large applique design was stitched on a non-stretchy bag so in this case, Tear-Away is a good option! (You may have to pick some out of the lettering, but it would come out pretty easily.)
