I have a BabyLock Ellure Plus and I went to embroider this past week, found out I could not embroider on a towel, it would not fit in my hoop but I tired to make a label on regular cloth with backing and the letters came out half made. I had changed out my bobbin and rethreaded my machine but still the letters would not embroider like they should, any ideas? I called the place where I bought it and they said to bring it in and I will do that on Monday am.

I don't put towels "in" the hoop.  I use the sticky stabalizer then stick the towel to that so it's actually on top of the hoop.  I also have a babylock ellure plus :)  :)

Thanks for the great idea, I am totally new to sewing, is "sticky" stabilizer a brand or type? Sorry to sound so dumb but I really am new! Thanks for your help!

Never hoop the towel itself. You can break the hoop. use a sticky back stabilizer then place the towel then use a wss on top. I just pin the WSS  on each corner or hand baste  with extra large stitches just to hold it in place.

Thank you Dutchess but what is WSS? I'm not familiar with that as I am a total newby and has anyone ever had their Babylock stop making the standard embroidery letters where they only turned out like they were halfway made? I appreciate any and all advice.

WSS(sorry I did not clarify) is water soluble stabilizer. There are different thickness. I prefer the sturdy one. Joann's usually carries this and so does hancock fabrics & Hobby Lobby(costs more) . most JoAnns have a Viking dealer inside their store. IF you pretend   that you want a machine       -DO NOT BUY--)  They will be happy to show you anything. After they finish demo always say I'm goin to see what my husband says.or I'll think about it.

I have been getting freebie lessons and help this way.

My Bernina dealer is a lot furhter so I only go about twice a yr.

My email is --heystella@juno.com maybe we can talk more.
