I was given a baseball hat to embroider. I noticed the hat has been used in the past and I tried to use sulky wet sticky stabilizer to hold the hat down.I can't make it stick because I believe there is hair oil/sweat embedded in the under surface of the hat. I cannot wash it because it has electronics built into the Hat. Does anybody have any ideas?

You could stick it down best as you can, then pin it there. Then take a hand needle and some thread and baste it down, with just large hand stitches going through both. You would probably want that on the perimeter of the small area you want to embroider, and maybe even going through it a bit. Then try to sew on it, if and as you get near your hand basting, just stop the machine, and slowly pick that part out as you get to it. You could try that.

I would give it back without the embroidery. We don't embroider anything in our shop that is not clean.

Iron on or use spray adhesive on smaller piece of cutaway stabilizer that will cover area of embroidery. Adhere to back of cap then place on top of sticky back stabilizer which is hooped.
