Solvy (trademarks owned by Gunold)
One of Gunold's most trusted and widely recognized products is our patented Solvy water soluble topping. Gunold can afford to be proud on this one, as Solvy started with Gunold. Indeed, we own the worldwide Solvy trademark on this "one-and-only original Solvy" that is the industry leader in water soluble toppings and backings. Accept imitations at your own peril, as the vast majority of other water soluble film products curl quickly upon a light touch, or have any number of quality issues that often compromise the very usability of the product. In contrast, Gunold's Solvy is consistent and virtually flawless. So, if you want a crisp and sharp look to your embroidery that would otherwise tend to sink into your fabric, this unique quality water soluble is your answer. The embroidery video demonstrations and hints below are designed to make you successful quickly with the finest water soluble film in the world Gunold Solvy.
Embroidery Scissors
Having the right scissor application for your embroidery can make or break your final product.

Gunold provides you with the information to form a clear understanding of what scissor applications work in specific situations. Don't sacrifice quality when you can solve the problem with a simple equipment change.
