What is the difference between Solufleece and Solufix?Close
They are both water-soluble embroidery backings. Solufix is also self-adhesive, thus preventing the designs from slipping when you do embroidery work. Solufix makes it far easier to embroider accurately and neatly than with the use of spray-on glue. It is also ideal for new, creative techniques, such as “crazy” technique .
What is the difference between Stitch-n-Tear and Fuse-n-Tear?Close
They are both used for embroidering. Ironing Fuse-n-Tear onto fabric also makes it temporarily adhesive andit can be torn out without leaving any remnants. It is especially good when embroidering on stretch fabrics. Fuse-n-Tear stabilises the fabric, to result in perfect embroidery work free from distortion.

What is the difference between a Quilter's Grid and a Quickscreen Square?Close
With Quilter's Grid, the motif is designed with square pieces of fabric. It also has an adhesive for affixing pieces of fabric. The edges can then be sewn around accurately, causing no fraying or slipping of the design that has been laid out. With a Quickscreen Square on the other hand, strips of fabric are used. And it has no adhesive.
