SA5929 Pacesetter® Heavyweight Cut-Away Stabilizer Roll 15" x 10 yds (38.1cm x 9.14m)

A cut-away type stabilizer is a frequent choice as it is important for keeping embroidery smooth during the life of the embroidered piece. The backbone of most embroidery applications, this cut-away stabilizer is recommended for medium to high density stitching. Excellent for Fleece, Jersey and Pique Knits, and for fabrics containing Lycra. Provides maximum stability on stretchy material.

SA5818 Stabilizer Roll, heavy weight, tear away, 10yds

This firm, stiff tear-away is ideal for projects that are either heavy or light weight and require extra stability. Excellent for cotton, faux leathers, shirts, nylon jackets, blouses, neckties, sheets or pillowcases. It is best to float this tear-away under the hoop rather than placing it in the hoop with the fabric. You will find many uses for this stabilizer, including projects featuring decorative stitches on the sewing side of the machine. Simply cut strips of this stabilizer and place on the wrong side (back) of the fabric when sewing decorative stiches. To easily tear away excess stabilizer apply gentle pressure to the stitches with your thumb, and then use your other hand to pull away remaining stabilizer surrounding the stiches.

SA5906 Stabilizer Roll, lightweight, adhesive-backed, water soluble, 6yds

This adhesive backed stabilizer firmly sticks to the fabric and helps minimize movement of the face fabric, keeping the fabric smooth during embroidery. Excellent for adhering to fabrics with excessive stretch, such as Lycra or spandex, it is a great choice for hard-to-hoop or small embroidery projects. Also excellent for embroidering lace type designs on sheer fabric or netting. Completely removable when submerged in warm water or through a gentle wash cycle.

SA540 Stabilizer Roll, lightweight, water soluble, 25yds

This is a firm, fibrous type of water-soluble stabilizer, with many uses as embroidery backing or topping. Excellent for embroidery applications such as towels, jersey knit shirts, pique and Lycra. Unlike the clear film type product, this fibrous water-soluble is designed not to perforate from the needle penetration. This type of stabilizer is a must have for creating freestanding lace. Excellent for embroidering high stitch counts, it does not readily tear or separate. It is also soft and pliable, making it easy to hoop. Feel free to use more than one layer as needed. Ideal for many creative sewing and embroidery projects, including invisible needle turn appliqué and artistic scarves made out of thread and yarns. You can safely write on this stabilizer with a water-soluble pen. Useful as an added stabilizer for buttonhole-making too. This water soluble stabilizer requires thorough rinsing in warm water for complete removal.

SA520 Stabilizer Roll, lightweight, water soluble, 3.2yds

Genuine Brother® Accessory. This lightweight stabilizer is known as a film type of water soluble stabilizer. Up close it has the look of a clear plastic film but it actually washes away completely with warm water. This makes it ideal for situations when you need the stabilizer to completely disappear after you have finished stitching. Commonly used as a topping on napped fabrics such as towels, consider using this stabilizer on a wide variety of textured and napped fabrics where it is likely that the stitches will sink into the fibers. It is a good idea to add this topping when embroidering on knit fabrics to help raise the stitches above the tiny ribs found on many knits. This type of stabilizer is also a great added layer for embroidering sheer and lightweight fabrics including chiffon and organza. Simply add a layer on top of the fabric and on the bottom, sandwiching the thin fabric in between. Remember that the fabric you are using must be washable in warm water. In addition, keep in mind the fact that this provides only temporary support for the stitches. Some designs will require additional, non-removable stabilizer for support both during and after embroidery is complete.

SA541 Stabilizer Roll, lightweight, water soluble, 6yds

Same as SA540, but available in a large size roll. This is a firm, fibrous type of water-soluble stabilizer, with many uses as embroidery backing or topping. Excellent for embroidery applications such as towels, jersey knit shirts, pique and Lycra. Unlike the clear film type product, this fibrous water-soluble is designed not to perforate from the needle penetration. This type of stabilizer is a must have for creating freestanding lace. Excellent for embroidering high stitch counts, it does not readily tear or separate. It is also soft and pliable, making it easy to hoop. Feel free to use more than one layer as needed. Ideal for many creative sewing and embroidery projects, including invisible needle turn appliqué and artistic scarves made out of thread and yarns. You can safely write on this stabilizer with a water-soluble pen. Useful as an added stabilizer for buttonhole-making too. This water-soluble stabilizer requires thorough rinsing in warm water for complete removal.

SA5815 Stabilizer Roll, medium-weight, adhesive tear away, 10 yds

This adhesive backed stabilizer sticks to fabrics with minimal adhesive transfer to garment or needle. You can use this tacky stabilizer in a variety of situations. You will find it particularly useful for items that are too small or difficult to hoop, such as collars, baby items, blankets, napkin corners, and more. Excellent for hard to hoop fabrics such as velvet, satin, leather, velveteen, and ultra-suede. This is a popular choice for fabrics that suffer from impressions left after hooping. Test first for complete removal on delicate fabrics.

SA5810 Stabilizer Roll, medium-weight, tear away, 10 yds

With multiple uses for both embroidery and decorative stitching, this tear-away stabilizer is one you will reach for again and again. Simply place one or more layers against the wrong side (back) of your project. Sew or embroider, and then remove by pulling the excess away from the stitches. Perfect for projects that are either heavy or light weight, this stabilizer can be used on its own or as an added layer with cut-away type stabilizers. This versatile tear-away is pliable enough to be hooped with the fabric but it can also be used as a floating layer underneath the hoop. Excellent stabilizer for many different fabrics and embroidery projects such as shirts, nylon jackets, blouses, neckties, sheets, pillowcases, ribbons, and much more!

SA519 Stabilizer Sheets, medium-weight, iron-on backing, 3 11"x12" sheets

Genuine Brother® Accessory. 3 pieces included. This white, paper fiber iron-on stabilizer provides a stable surface for machine embroidery, keeping fabric from stretching and distorting while it is in the hoop. This stabilizer is useful for projects that require a temporary stabilizer. Use a warm dry iron to attach to the wrong side (back) of your fabric. When finished with embroidery, gently tear-away remaining stabilizer. Test first for complete removal on delicate fabrics.

SA5930PK Stablizer Sheets, lightweight, adhesive-backed, water-soluble, __ 13”x19” sheets

Same as SA5906, available in convenient pack of twelve 13” X 9” sheets. This adhesive backed stabilizer firmly sticks to the fabric and helps to minimize movement of the face fabric, keeping the fabric smooth during embroidery. Excellent for adhering to fabrics with excessive stretch, such as Lycra or spandex, it is a great choice for hard-to-hoop or small embroidery projects. Also excellent for embroidering lace type designs on sheer fabric or netting. Completely removable when submerged in warm water or through a gentle wash cycle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frostrating. I am very frustrated. I've always had Singer Machines. My husband surprised me with the new machine because my embroidery component on my Singer was not working. I've been unable to figure the new Brother Embroidery machine out. My Singer was much easier and had less steps to transfer the templates, etc. I have never had to sign up for training with. Sewing machine before and it looks like I am going to have to do so at a cost of $300.00 to be able to use this brother. If I could return it and get my money back I would at this point. All I can say is it's name fits it as I said "Oh Brother!" With frustration.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New to Brother So far I like this machine, although it is new and I am still learning it. It will be a long learning process as it has numerous features. However, I have found it difficult at times to see where I am sewing due to the foot and the stitch I have chosen. I don't care for how the machine threads. I find it cumbersome. I don't care for how the the back up stitch works as I would like a bit more control over how many stitches and how far back I wish to stitch. I would have liked a color LED screen. (I have b/w) I do like that it is quiet and has all the embroidery and quilting options.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed I bought this product after much research. I was so anxious to incorporate embroidery into my quilts. I had a lesson on how to embroider but on close examination of the finished products at home, I noticed that there was "looping" on the front and back of the material. In addition, the hoop "chatters" on the right side when embroidering. I did several trials at home making sure the material and backing were properly loaded into the hoop, correct foot, recommended thread top and bottom etc., but the product was TERRIBLE. I took the machine to the place of purchase on Saturday and they will be letting me know what they found in a few more days. I DO NOT WANT a repaired machine, I bought a NEW machine. If this is the quality that I get for my $$, I will return it for a full refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from more education The machine is amazing. Being new to machine embroidery I would like to see more How-To videos, maybe on YouTube or the Brother website? Also I think the formats should be more plainly found. I had to search and search before I could find what pattern formats my machine accepted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good machine for a beginner I had the Brother's SE425 before and wanted to upgrade so I purchased the SB 8000. I have had it for about 3 months. I have had some problems with thread breakage but I think it is the type of thread. I do have some problems with the automatic needle threaded but the place where I purchased the machine said just to push it a little harder. I love the way it sews. A good machine overall.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Frustrated I had a Brother 400 before this one and loved it. Wanted a bigger hoop size. I'm having a hard time with constancy when in embroidery mode. I've tried all options and think I have it working and than the threads will end up being really loose in just one area and then it seems to correct itself and continues on just fine. Also, bobbin thread jams up and lots of thread breakage. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a embroidery machine This is my first embroidery machine and I love it I am a 72 year old beginner and the first week I made birthday cards on it three practice pictures and am getting ready to make pillow cases with beautiful designs. I'm going to start on an heirloom quilt next. It's one of the easiest machines to learn I've ever bought. My friend has a different brand embroidery machine and she's decided to buy one like mine because of how beautifully it runs. The price is great too. I bought it to learn on, perfect for that. When I'm ready to replace it it will be with another brother.
