    Default monograming outdoor fabric

    Hello, I have recently purchased a Brother PE-770 embroidery machine and for my first project I would like to embroider some initials on outdoor fabric. Which stabilizer would be best suited for this purpose?
    Thanks in advance for any assistance provided.

    You don't always have to use a stabilizer if it is outdoor like canvas or sumbrella you won't need it. You didn't say what type it is buy heavy fabrics can hold there own.

    But if you wanted to use a stabiizer, I'd use a cut-a-way.

    Thank you jacosandy for your reply, it isn't the Sunbrella named brand but the same exact type of fabric.....

    Thank you Shastasmom for your response.....I am making some curtains with said fabric and am afraid the cut away would show ruining the monogram.....

    sblack, I was thinking cushions, so no with curtains, I wouldn't use any stabilizer either. I would use matching bobbin thread so that the monogram would look good from both sides.

    I agree with Ramona I would use same colored bobbin thread on curtains, I have embroidered a lot on this type of fabric and I never use a stabilizer on it. I make boat cushions and such with it and they always want the boats name and logo someplace

    Do the regular embroidery threads hold up in the sun and weather?
