GSG Video Covers Sewing On Moisture-Management Fabrics

December 8, 2014

A new video from GSG, Dallas, demonstrates how to embroider on moisture-management and dry-wicking materials with minimal puckering and pulling. 

In the video, shown above, embroidery expert Liz Beavers demonstrates how cutaway performance backing — in conjunction with tearaway waffle fire-retardant backing — can be used to address the challenges of moisture-management fabrics.

Viewers will learn how the two backings can be combined to provide stability while allowing thin, stretchy fabrics to move freely. The video demonstrates the process step by step from stabilizing the garment and choosing the correct ballpoint needle to removing the backing for smooth, fuzz-free embroidery that doesn’t pull the fabric.
