Re: Stabilizer for embroidery

I regularly stitch designs over 100000 stitches, I never require 2 layers of stabiliser. I use a non branded cutaway medium weight, 2.oz stabiliser,  have you test stitched a portion of the design on a similar weight fabric, tried different stabilisers. When you use two or more layers of stabiliser you are in effect creating a quilt, and that brings along with it unwanted puckering. Take a look at the article regarding high stitch count designs
