START YOUR PROJECT WITH THE BEST STABILIZER!

Every project begins with a great idea and the right foundation. This is especially true for embroidery. Stabilizer and Interfacing are just that: solid foundations for your embroidery that provide the stability you need for your design to sew out well and remain intact. Baby Lock stabilizers have been tested by Baby Lock experts to ensure that you’ll always see professional results. You’ll love having the same quality in your stabilizer as the machine you embroider with. Visit your local Baby Lock Retailer today to try a Baby Lock stabilizer for yourself – there’s a wide selection for virtually every project. No matter what you’re embroidering, Baby Lock has created the perfect place for you to start. And with such a wide variety, you’ll find just the type and size of stabilizer no matter what your need, including 15" and 20" rolls to use with today’s largest hoops and multi-needle machines.

There are five different types of stabilizers:

  • Tear Away - these are temporary stabilizers that you can easily remove once your embroidery design has finished stitching out.

  • Cut Away - these are permanent stabilizers. Once a design is stitched out, you can cut away any excess stabilizer from the design. This type of stabilizer is great for sweatshirts, polo shirts and jackets.

  • Wash Away - these are temporary stabilizers that disappear once they come into contact with water.

  • Press Away - this a temporary stabilizer that dissolves when pressed with a hot, dry iron.

  • Interfacing - applied to the wrong side of fabric to provide a stiffen or provide more body to a fabric.
