Sewing with knits & stretchy fabrics

12 Stitching techniques

We all wear knits!  Why not learn what it takes to handle, control and sew with a variety of knit fabrics. Like Jersey, spandex, cotton or polyester loose-weave knits. Don't forget metallic knits, fleece, Minky and scuba knits. 

All sew'ers regardless of sewing level should be able to apply these techniques when called for in any in-store or online pattern.
The pattern instructions don't include these instructions.
