For those who don’t have built-in basting stitches, I have digitized basting stitches for the most common hoop sizes, 2mm inside the edge of the hoop.
- My preference is always to hoop the stabilizer and float the top fabric and batting/wadding. I use a Tearaway/Washaway Stabilizer for everything other than Free Standing Lace.
- Basting stitches are provided in 12 different hoop sizes in the following formats: ART, DST, EXP, JEF, PES and VP3
- Hoop Sizes: 4×4″, 5×5″, 5×7″, 6×6″, 6×10″, 8×8″, 8×12″, 9×9″, 9.5×9.5″, 9.5×14″, 10×10″, 10×14″
- If you require a different format, please just ask.
