Embroidery Backings & Stabilizers

Get your backings and stabilizers in all different shapes, styles, sizes and weights.

Use embroidery backings and stabilizers for your embroidery and sewing projects. These high quality backings prevent puckering, which may occur when the embroidery thread is stronger than the fabric and pulls the fabric to result in wrinkles and lumps. With the aid of the correct backing, strengthen the fabric while it is on the hoop so it resists the pulling that causes puckering.

Lawson Screen & Digital sells backings in pre-cut sheets and large rolls. Pre-cut sheets are convenient and easy to use one at a time, while are less expensive. As a general rule, the backings weight should increase as the fabric's weight decreases. Backing weight is expressed in ounces per square yard, and refers to density rather than thickness.
