Can I use showmesh fusible in making face masks?
A Note From Kayly:
You can use the fusible version if you in fact fuse it to the cotton. We actually recommend using our Floriani Dream Weave Ultra interlining to fuse to the fabric and then use a piece of our Floriani No Show Nylon Mesh (non-fusible) as an insert between the front and back of the mask as an extra layer of filtration. These directions can be found on the website and RNK Distributing Facebook pages.

I am stumped with this stablizer. I've been using my Bernina 700 to embroider for a couple of years now...not extensively but lately I'm back at it. I've tried No Show Fusible Mesh and for the life of me, I can get it to stick unless the iron is on it's highest setting. It's not an old iron (2 years) and it's a Rowenta so it's not junk. How long to you need to keep the iron on the material in order to get it to stick? And is there a time needed after ironing to let it set ? I didn't think this would be complicated ! Sorry but I'm new to the product and want to make sure it's user error and not blame the product. Any advice is welcome!
A Note from Kayly: Thank you for your comments. Not sure what is going on with the fusing issue but it should certainly fuse in at a wool setting on your iron immediately.
Please write to me through our tech support “firstname.lastname@example.org” and send me your address, I will get this replaced immediately!

I always use the no show, I love it on stretchy fabrics, my question is, I just used it on a vest with a liner, the liner fabric is like a soft flannel, when I removed my no show, it left some residue, and I am not sure what to use to remove it.
A Note from Kayly:
Thank you for writing in to us. It sounds as though your iron was too hot when you pressed the product on to the garment. Remember that all Floriani fusible stabilizers require a "low" temperature. To remove any residue, press a piece of clean muslin to the particles using a medium setting on your iron, pull the muslin away and it should lift the fusible particles from the fabric. You may need to repeat this process multiple times using clean pieces of fabric.
Remember to use "ask kayly" for any and all questions concerning our stabilizers and threads - we are here to help!

the best and no waste for the small embroidery hoop, just cut 8 inch strips and then in half! I love it!!!

I love the Floriani products, I've used the No Show Mesh now on several children's shirts. All have come out beautifully. The only complaint I have is that when I used it on a fleece sweatshirt, it was difficult to remove the stabilizer from the shirt after it was embroidered. Not to say it couldn't be operator error, I am new to embroidery. Perhaps another stabilizer would have been a better choice. Perhaps a non-fusible. Love your products!!!
A Note from Kayly: Thank you for your comments! I agree - Wet N Gone Tacky is perfect for embroidery on hard to hoop items such as napkins, collars, cuffs, etc. However, it is not designed to be embroidered directly on to free standing lace. Please use our regular Wet N Gone for this technique and make sure the lace is digitized for "free standing". The adhesive on Wet N Gone Tacky is more difficult to remove if your water is hard. The answer is to use a water softener in the water such as hair conditioner, fabric softener or my favorite, bath water gel beads! This will force the adhesive to "let go" of the fibers of the fabric and they will wash away. Remember to use room temperature water for the best results.

I love this product too. I have used white cutaway stabilizers on tee shirts and you can see the outline of the stabilitzer and it appears stiffer than the rest of the shirt. This does not show through and is soft while still holding the shirt for the embroidery process.

This product is amazing and I love it. I have never found a design that doesn't work great with this. It is soft holds the stitches and the fusibility is great for holding the garment still in the hoop. I would recommend to everyone.

I was new to embroidery and someone said try Floriani. Well I did and now I try not to run out of any of the Floriani products. Other embroiderers think I am to particular. I really want to tell them to look at their end product versus mine. I will continue to use the product and do not intend to change.
If I want to sell a bullet proof vest then I will use the same thing they do.
