I am putting a name on A 100 percent Micro polyester shirt. this shirt is very slippery and I am going to try to do this. I am going to use an iron on stabilizer and use sulky self adhesive in the hoop. Before I do this if anybody else has any great ideas please let me know before I do this.

I had an instructor suggest pinning it to the stabilizer well away from where it will be actually stitched. I would also recommend taking advantage of having the machine baste it around the design before it begins the actual embroidery if your machine supports that function.

it doesn't matter what type of sewing you do. you are sewing, and sewing is good.

Can you digitize a basting stitch box around the design, that you remove afterward? I do this on almost everything I embroidery. Holds things down to the stabilizer very well.

iPad's auto-correct is my enema.

I used sulky iron on stabilizer on the shirt and used tearaway stabilizer in the hoop , took a big breath, hit the go button, it came out great. No puckers, no wrinkles, absolutely perfect.
