Hold Light

Extra support under your embroidery that won't rinse away!

  • This amazing stabilizer has a variety of wonderful features for sewing and embroidery! Iron onto back of garments before applying onto our Stick and Tear to protect terrycloth from pulling apart after embroidery is complete.
  • Hold light, is a clear lightweight iron-on, tear-away stabilizer that locks the fiber in your fabric and prevents it from stretching as you sew or embroider.
  • It's fantastic for use as a backing when doing traditional machine applique'. Open your next pattern and lay out Hold Light over it - trace pattern on shiny side and then iron the traced pattern onto fabric. Before cutting out pattern pieces, iron on fabric and then cut! This holds the fabric in place and makes sure it doesn't fray while handling during the sewing process. You peel back right before sewing for easy sewing.
  • Use on top and bottom when applique'ing Lame for perfect stitching and -0- damage to the Lame'.
