Floriani Wet N Stick

Wet N Stick® is offered in a tearaway version which comes plain or with one inch grid markings. This remarkable stabilizer is coated with a water activated, silicone based adhesive. It is an alternative to pressure sensitive "sticky" paper products and/or messy spray adhesives. Most home embroiderers have at some point experienced problems with peel and stick products gumming up their needles as well as the designs registration not lining up correctly. This happens because they mistake "paper" for stabilizer. The main differences between Wet N Stick® and these products are that Floriani's is a stabilizer not paper and the adhesive doesn't get sticky residue on the needle. The adhesive on Wet N Stick® can be re-activated multiple times for easy re-positioning of garments. Wet N Stick w/Grid is unique because it offers one-inch grid lines which are especially appealing for lining up cuffs and collars or border designs.

  • Perfect for bulky items such as towels, robes and blankets
  • Use for fabrics and garments that get "hoop burn"
  • Use for hard to hoop items such as napkin corners, collars, cuffs, etc.
  • One layer of the tearaway version will support around 8,000 to 10,000 stitches on an average size, well digitized design
  • The adhesive can be re-activated several times

Floriani Wet N Stick Tearaway Stabilizer w/ Grid

To use Floriani Wet N Stick® Tear Away:

  1. Hoop one layer of the stabilizer, adhesive side up. Be sure the product is taut within the hoop. If using Wet N Stick® with a grid, line the grid marks up with the lines on your inner hoop.
  2. Apply a drop of water onto the stabilizer in each corner of the hoop as well as one in the center using a sponge, foam paint brush or envelope sealer (recommended, available at office supply stores). Remember that minimal water is required to activate the adhesive.
  3. Using the tip of your finger, smooth the drops of water over the surface of the stabilizer. You will feel the adhesive become tacky almost instantly.
  4. Press the garment into place and smooth out any wrinkles.
  5. Embroider your design. 600 stitches per minute or less is recommended. *Tip - If the design is denser than 8,000 to 10,000 stitches or if it is a poorly digitized design (too many stitches for designs size), float one layer of Floriani Medium Tearaway under the hooped item for each additional 10,000 stitches for added support!
  6. Once the design is complete, remove the hoop from your embroidery machine and tear or cut away the Wet N Stick® stabilizer. If the adhesive is holding on to the garment, reactivate it by applying moisture at the glue line. Once the adhesive is re-activated it will release the garment.

I used this for making long embroidered borders for a quilt. The designs , though well digtized, were dense, and over the length of each border, even a little puckering or shifting would have been disastrous. All the borders came out perfectly, with no rippling or puckering at all. I am so impressed with this stabilizer. I am a stickler for non-puckered embroideries, and I think I have just found a favorite in my arsenal of tools. Oh yes, I did these borders in an endless hoop. I cut a long piece of 12" wide Wet 'n Stick, adhered the border strip to it, and was able to roll and unroll the long ends as I progressed through the embroideries. Nothing buckled or shifted even with the multiple rolling and unrolling. A great, reliable product. Thanks, Floriani!

This one is GREAT for towels. Sticky stabilizers can pull the loops when trying to remove towels from them. With this one I just spray the back of the stabilizer really well with water, wait for it to penetrate and the stabilizer peels away just like "wet paper". No damage to the towel loops.
