The lining is placed above the embroidered piece. Embroider face lining is a kind of special material, and designed to prevent the embroidery thread “falling into” cloth – this kind of cloth is the needle aspiration type. For example, if your embroideries are in terry fabric, wool fabric, knitted fabrics, velvet, corduroy, artificial fur, etc., embroidery lining is necessary. If you forget, your product will be hopelessly damaged. Even if the fabric is embroidered and friendly, when you want to make it “stand up”, it is also good to use the lining.
