Attach the hoop onto your
machine and load the embroidery file (not the dieline
files). Embroider the design. The first thing to
embroider will be a dieline (or outline stitch). This
marks the area on the stabilizer where the fabric piece
will be placed.
For best results, use a size 11
or 75/11 sharp sewing needle. A sharp sewing needle has a
smaller, finer point than an embroidery needle, and
makes smaller perforations in the stabilizer, which
helps to prevent shifting.
