What kind of thread do you use for free standing lace?
Threads: Free-standing lace (FSL) designs can be embroidered using rayon or polyester embroidery threads, depending on your preference. We prefer to use 40-weight polyester theads. To get 2-sided embroidery you should use the same thread for the needle thread and bobbin thread.
Can lace be embroidered?
Freestanding lace can be one of the most dazzling things about machine embroidery. Stitch out a specially digitized lace design onto water-soluble stabilizer, then rinse the stabilizer away, leaving only the stitches in a beautiful, airy pattern.
