Stabilisers & Backings

Embroidery Stabilisers & Backings

10 Categories

With most materials, it is important to have a backing fabric not only to stabilise fabrics, but also to ensure the smooth movement of the frame across the base plate of the machine. In addition to providing stability the use of a stabiliser helps to reduce puckering.

Our stabilisers are by Madeira and Vilene. All the Vilene products are branded Vilene all the others are Madeira. Both brands are premium stabilisers of exceptional quality.
