OeSD Hydrostick stabilizer

The other day I went into my local sewing shop and saw the owner giving a quick embroidery demo, suddenly I looked down and said "you didn't hoop your fabric!!!" Then she showed me the Hydrostick by OeSD.


Simply hoop your stabilizer, then take a wet sponge and dampen the area where you will place your fabric and then press the fabric in place. 

You should wait about 30-40 seconds for the stabilizer to dry and sew!

Notice how the fabric looks bumpy-it is!  As long as the area where you are going to be sewing has been damped and the fabric pressed down it is fine!  Oh and the glue can be re- dampened over and over.  When your are finished sewing gently tear the stabilizer away.

Look how many times I used this one piece, then when it was full, I rehooped it and used even more.  I am making a quilt for my son's class and I was able to embroider 15 names on a 9 x 13 section.  I probably could have done more if I was more conservative.  I think I have found my new stabilizer.  This stuff is awesome!! 

Ok, in all fairness, there are some drawbacks, the glue makes the stabilizer thicker and it is a little harder to pull off, I worry that it is pulling the threads or if I have to take a seam ripper to it, I might rip the fabric.  Also, I have to admit, it was a little more expensive, but I really think I save in the long run.  If I were to have done this project with the standard tear away stabilizer I would have used so much more.  As far as I am concerned, the benefits outweigh the drawbacks, just thinking of the time I saved not having to rehoop each piece. 
All in all, I love this stuff!
