    Has anyone ever tried machine embroidery on a knit? I am trying to draw with thread using a darning foot and the feed dogs down. I watched a tut and gave it a try, but I’m doing something wrong.

    I guess my top tread tension was too loose, but I’m also trying to figure out how to stabilize the knit fabric. Ideas?

    I bought some dissolvable stabilizer, but it isn’t adding much stability.

    I’ve machine embroidered on knit several times using iron-on paper stabilizer, then when you are done you just tear it away. It stabilizes knit fabric quite well and would also slide smoothly if you’re doing free-motion.
