Merry Christmas Eve!

 This article is brought to you by Lizzsews.

Up in the North Pole,

Lies the special man. 

He gives his belly a shake,

And laughs until it aches.

There’s a blizzard outside,

But he has promises to keep.

With cookies and milk,

This trip should be a breeze,

Hopefully the reindeer won’t freeze!

He, Santa Claus, rises from his bed,

Ready for the night ahead!

Christmas sewing is - somewhat - enjoyable,

And almost always last minute!

The sounds of the machine echo

Through the house. 

From the first to the twenty-fifth,

The sewing never stops!

We sew tea towels, embroider terry cloths,

Make pillowcases and more. 

We have promises to keep,

And until then we shall not sleep!

In the end it’s always worth it, 

For the happy faces 

Of the ones,

who receive the gifts,

On Christmas,

Are irreplaceable!

Excited children wake in the morning to see,

Oh, where has the elf hidden?!

The elf on the shelf will always be goofy,

From rolling down the stairs in toilet paper,

To ‘elf-ercise’, to a marshmallow bath!

For today is the last day for which we see the elf,

We must have a grand goodbye!

Tonight, Santa arrives,

And in the morning, Christmas!

A very happy occasion with just one sad part,

We must say goodbye to our elf,

“Farewell elfy! See you next year!”

Stabilizers are important in machine embroidery; they prevent puckering and support the fabric.  The stabilizer goes underneath the fabric you are embroidering. Although there are some stabilizers that will go on top of certain types of fabric, this is called a topper.  A bottom stabilizer is always needed, you can never embroider without stabilizer, but a stabilizer topper is only needed for certain blanks. The three main types of stabilizers are cutaway, tearaway, and wash away.  The first is a cutaway stabilizer. A cutaway stabilizer can be used on clothes and many different types of fabric. The cutaway stabilizer is permanent and is mainly designed for knit fabric. It is non-woven and helps get rid of pulled or sagging stitches.  The cutaway stabilizer has a lot of stretch resistance and stays intact after wearing, using, and launderin
