I am about to make lace (Yes, and awesome design from Urban Threads!). This is my first time embarking on this type of project. I am pretty sure the type of stabilizer to get, but wanted to know if anyone had a favorite brand.

I have heard lace can be kinda finicky and want to ensure my initial success!   Grin

Also, I have a Bernina, if that makes a difference or biases your opinion on brand.

Any advice on stabilizer, or other things I don't even know to ask about, is appreciated!

I use two layers of ultra solvy.  Use the smallest hoop the design allows.  Don't throw away the stabilizer you pull off the finished design.  Dissolve it in a little bit of water.  Then you can brush it onto any finished lace (I also use it on patches) you want to keep stiff.

Ultra Solvy is great and can be found in most fabric/craft stores.  I use at least two layers.
Badgemaster is even better, thick enough I only need one layer, but I can only find it online.
