Wash Away Stabiliser For Embroidery to be used for garment buttonholes

Helen M

Having read a post on Instagram about using a washaway stabiliser for buttonholes on garments I'm wondering if anyone has used this on embroidery and if so where do you get it from?

The post I read was from France and the corresponding item was much more expensive on Amazon UK than Amazon Fr. I also don't think I need as so much of it.

Any info gratefully received!

I got my last lot from Amazon but before that I bought mine from the shows I go to - can't remember exactly which stall but think Barnyarns may have been one.
So many beers, so little time.

Thank you @realale I know of Barnyarns from the shows will have a look at their site!

Linky - a good source for stabiliser.

If you only want small bits, I think I have a few I can send you.

Solufleece is the best washaway I have used, it looks a bit like a J cloth & is easy to sew on.  The clear plastic stuff isn’t that good, unless you are using it in a hoop! 
I just love sewing!

What’s is a J cloth?
You can't scare me. I taught high school for 32 years.

@Sara-S A J cloth is a non-woven cleaning cloth - https://www.jcloth.com/

@StitchinTime thanks for the explanation. We use those here too, but we call them Handy-Wipes.
