Important note: There are several different kinds of Steam A Seam. We purchased a package of Steam A Seam Light 2 5-9x12 sheets at Joann Fabrics on the notions wall, regular price $3.99. The
SKU# is 53705 05417. The things we didn't like about this product is that it has a waxy paper backing on both sides (as opposed to the other products that have paper backing on one side only) We also thought that the product was pricey as Joanns sells it by a package and not by the yard.

Our designs are manually digitized and test stitched before release. For best results we recommend stitching our designs unaltered on projects hooped with stabilizer appropriate for the material being used. We cannot guarantee results when our designs have been modified in software or non-traditional hooping methods are used. We highly recommend doing a test stitch on an altered design before putting it on a valuable blank.That being said, we are often asked for a recommendation for embroidery editing software for customizing purposes:
