When adding embroidery to your most delicate fabrics such as silk, satin, lame or chamois, you can experience shredding. This occurs because the fragile fibers of the fabric are not capable of handling the constant penetration of the needle during the embroidery process. This can also occur in fabrics such as Swiss Batiste, top quality quilt cottons and linen, Lycra or spandex which are often used in dance uniforms or bathing suits. By fusing Floriani Dream Weave Fusible® to the back of the fabric it helps to protect the fabric by giving it more body yet doesn't change the face or drape of the fabric. This product can also be used as a lining in all types of fabrics for suits or garment construction. It is important to remember that Dream Weave is not a stabilizer. It is a very important step to prepping or preparing delicate fabrics for embroidery.
Another great use for Floriani Dream Weave® is to cover scratchy stitches on the backside of embroidery designs. This is especially nice for baby garments, youth apparel or golf shirts. Because it is a 6 way stretch, Dream Weave® will move with the garment and won't add unwanted bulk.

We are diligent about enforcing copyright laws; if a book, pattern or embroidery design is required for a class, each student must purchase their own copy. There are no exceptions.
