This is one of my favourite Floriani Products!

I use this product for embroidery but also use it when mending stretchy sports clothing like slinky basketball shorts, tights, leggings. It allows you to sew more easily and with a much better seam on this wiggly fabric. Pin edges of rip or blown out seam together. Cut Wet n Gone Tacky into strips....just a bit wider than your seam allowance is enough. Pull the paper, stick the strips along the raw edges over your pins, sew with a narrow zig zag, overlock, or other stretchy stitch (don't use with a serger). Pull the pins as you sew. Rinse with soft water as instructed above. I don't recommend using a tear away as there aren't usually enough stitches to perforate and you don't want any stabilizer left in the seam allowance to irritate the skin. Great result.

I had used Sulky sticky to hand embroider and bead tulle for ballet bodices. A friend suggested Floriani so I tried it. It is wonderful to sew through however it is REALLY hard to get out of the tulle. Guess I'm back to my Sulky since it's easier to get out even though it's harder to embroider. I will however use the Floriani for other embroidery items.
A Note from Kayly:
Hi Rena and thank you for your comment. Keeping our products needle friendly is priority. Our adhesive is a bit harder to remove when there are minerals present in water. To remove the adhesive from the project, use a water softener. My favorite is “bath beads” but I have also had success with fabric softener or hair conditioner. Personally, my water is “well water” and has a lot of minerals present - the adhesive tries to hang on to the minerals - using a softener forces the minerals to flush out with the water leaving your project perfectly soft. Good luck and thanks again for your comment.

It is really a great product for hoop-less items. It's very hard to get out! Absolutely do not use it on FreeStandingLace!
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 the wet and gone tacky, there are so many items I hate to hoop, and it's also perfect to use behind all types of general heirloom sewing.
