Framing

The fabric to be embroidered on must be framed-in in a way which prevents it from moving during the embroidery process. Depending on the kind of fabric, it has to be stabilized by Non-Wovens (from the backside), or water-soluble films (AVALON - laid on top). This helps to ensure a nice result without displacements of stitches.

In special cases (e.g. velvet), the fabric cannot be framed-in since the high pressure on the frame will leave signs on the fabric. In such a case you can frame-in a Non-Woven and fix the fabric on top of it with an adhesive spray (MSA 1100).
