A template is a printout of a design, and it's an excellent tool to plan where to stitch.

Print a template of the design from your embroidery software.
If you do not have embroidery software, Wilcom's TrueSizer is
a free program to use.

Arrange the template on the fabric until it's where you want to embroider the design. In this example, the template is in the center of the linen.

Attach the hoop to the machine and load the design.

Move the hoop so the needle is right over the center point.

Embroider the design.

After embroidering, unhoop the fabric.

There's no need to cut the stabilizer away from the back. When left behind, it will add extra stability to the piece.
