Floriani Heat N Stay Fusible Tearaway is an embroidery stabilizer that has a light
fusible coating and was developed for embroidery on light
weight cotton, shirt weight denim, linen and other woven
fabrics that tend to stretch. The uniqueness of Heat N Stay
is the fact that it is fusible. This eliminates the need
for messy spray adhesives which leave a residue on the
needle, machine and fabric. By fusing the stabilizer to
the back of the garment, embroiderers are more successful
in hooping and do not stretch the garment out of shape.
Most importantly, the stabilizer is attached to the entire
area where the embroidery will be stitched unlike spray
adhesives which only "spot" tack and allow shifting
of the fabric. Floriani Heat N Stay is also well liked because
it offers a clean tear from around the design. It is also
available in a non-fusible version and is called Floriani
Use for solid type embroidery designs
on light weight woven fabrics such as batiste, linen,
shirt weight denim, pin-point cotton, quilt cottons,
Makes hooping a snap by eliminating
shift and stretch within the fabric
Fibers of the fabric will not
move during the stitching process
Will support about an 8,000 stitch
count, well digitized design.
Tears away clean from around the
No need for basting or spray adhesives!
Heat N Sta Tearaway:
Fuse one layer of Heat N Sta to the
back of the fabric to be embroidered. Be sure to use
a piece at least one inch larger than the outer parameter
of the hoop to insure proper stabilization.*Important- Use a low temp (260°, silk) setting on your
iron. Do not touch the surface of your iron to the
Heat N Sta, press from the fabric side or use a press
cloth (muslin or cotton).
Hoop the garment and stabilizer. Try
to achieve "tight as a drum" tension.
Embroider your design. *Tip- If the design is denser than 8,000 stitches
or if it is a poorly digitized design (too many stitches
for designs size), float one layer of Floriani Medium
Tearaway between the hoop and the bed of the machine
for each additional 8,000 stitches for added support!
Once the design is complete, remove
the hoop from the machine and tear away the Heat N
Sta from around the embroidery.
