Blazer Poplin ~ aka Trigger fabric

Stitchers often ask me what fabric is used for Brazilian Embroidery.  Unlike the ‘even weave’ fabrics necessary for  Counted stitching – Trigger fabric is used most often for Brazilian Dimensional embroidery.  Many other fabrics are suitable,  designers prefer Trigger.  You may also find it referred to as Blazer Poplin, it has a tight weave with a nice weight for the stitches used in Brazilian Embroidery for example,  bullions and cast-ons.

If you are doing a special project use the fabric appropriate –  albums, totes, wedding accessories or apparel.  For general Brazilian Embroidery stitching, Blazer Poplin ( aka- Trigger ) is used.

If you have questions about fabric, Brazilian Dimensional embroidery patterns, EdMar thread, Milliner needles or other BE supplies – drop me a comment.  You will find the Trigger fabric and all other Brazilian Embroidery supplies on my website    www.ThreadsinBloom.com
