Exquisite offers only th highest quality backings and stabilizers available. Exquisite products are developed exclusively for the embroidery industry and are not leftovers form products designed for other uses.
Back is the foundation for all great embroidery designs. It provides stability and keeps the material from shifting during stitching. Because there are almost as many different backings as there are applications, Exquisite offers a complete line to meet all of your embroidery needs.
The key to great embroidery is equal tensions on the fabric in all directions while the fabric is in the emboirdery hoop. Ideally, a taut, tambourine feel should be achieved. This way, for each movement of the embroidery achine, you will have an equal movement of the fabric. Most Exquisite backings are made from non-directional materials, providing equal tension in all directions, and have silicone to help lubricate the needle during embroidery, minimizing thread breaks.
When deciding which backing to use, consider the fabric on which the design is being stitched, the stitch count and the density of the design. Since different fabrics require different support or stabilization- the more stretch in the fabric, the more stabilizer required. However, thicker is not necessarily more stable. In addition, multiple layers of stabilizer may not add any stability. A single layer of Exquisite stabilizer is usually all that is needed.
