When you go shopping, touch everything! Pay attention to the weight, drape, and texture of anything made with fabric. When at the sewing store stroll around and check out all categories of fabrics. What are you drawn to? Sparkly and sheer? Fun cotton prints? Dramatic textured upholstery fabrics? Fleece? Let your imagination go.
Sewing aids and notions can provide options to adjust the “behavior” of a fabric or the ease of a sewing experience. Needle choice and sewing machine feet can make a difference in the neatness of a procedure. We will introduce and suggest Interfacings and iron on products that will give you more options to consider when creating your designs.
If you need feedback or have suggestions for any project, please post! Your experiences will help others. Feel welcome to post your endeavors and stories here or on our facebook page. We look forward to seeing you there!
Its great to have reference about selecting and handling fabric for any given project. Please post any books or share tips you have found handy about this subject.
