It is critical to hoop up your material correctly,  you must attach the fabric to the hoops that are fastened to the sewing machine. With machine embroidery, it is necessary for the sewer to hold the fabric in a fixed position until the machine completes the embroidered design. Tightness is an important factor to ensure a well-aligned design. Any movement of the fabric will cause details not to be lined up.

Since embroidery machines do not have anything to hold the fabric in place, a stabilizer is used to keep the fabric taut and in place for perfect design embroidery. Stabilizers come in many forms. Some are placed below the fabric while others are placed on top. Heat away stabilizers are unique because they turn to ash when ironed and leave no trace of the stabilizer.
