Sewing With Knit Fabrics

Sewing knits (like t-shirts) is somewhat different from sewing with woven fabrics. It includes sewing seams with a 'stretch' stitch, hemming with a double needle and special care in cutting. Knit fabrics tent to curl when they are cut so we deal with that. It is so great to make your own soft knit dress or a    t-shirt to match the color of your pants.

Sewing By Hand

Yes, sewing by hand is still done. You can make anything by hand sewing the seams although usually the choice project is small, like a pieced pillow top, stuffed toy seams, English Paper Piecing, patchwork or small garments.

The wonderful thing about hand sewing is the comfort and portability of your project. Just pick up the project box and take it along. You can sew in the car (as long as you're not driving) waiting at the doc's, watching the children in the park or in the comfort of your easy chair watching TV. Come and learn the details. It is FUN
