I habe this great pattern to make free standing butterfly wings for earrings from Urban Threads.  I need heavy duty water soluble stabilizer.  As I am making these to sell at craft fairs, I am looking for good quality at a low price.  Any suggestions?

Well, it might sound obvious, though stabilizers are usually pricey. My personal preference is Vilene - it comes by the yard, on a roll or even sometimes in pre-cut squares.
Have you had a look at this guide https://forum.embroideres.com/articles.html/articles/water-soluble-stabilizer-in-machine-embroidery-r242/? They've mentioned some options you should consider first, since there are two kinds of water soluble stabilizer - one that looks like cellophane and one that is fibrous. I prefer fibrous type, the cellophane type is mostly used as a topper to keep the stitches from sinking into the fabric's weave.
