What’s an embroiderer to do? Some stitchers try to avoid hoop burn by avoiding hooping.

We don’t recommend this in most cases, because unhooped fabric becomes very vulnerable to shifting and gapping.

Over time, non-sprayers will still get some sticky residue on their hoop from adhesive stabilizers and items that have been sprayed with adhesive and finger-pressed onto the stabilizer.
