LET US TAKE OUT THE GUESSWORK
Choosing fabric is one of the hardest things to do when you're learning to sew. There are so many choices!
Some fabrics are stretchy, some retain heat, some are slippery, and some are lightweight…
The options are seemingly endless when you walk into a fabric store. And shopping for fabric online is even more overwhelming!
In this 19-page guide, we explain different types of fabric and how to choose the best one for your garment sewing projects. We have lots of tips and information to share!

Fabrics In Depth
Sometimes, you hear that a pattern needs cotton. It can be confusing because you are not sure if the garment needs Quiliting Cotton or Cotton with Spandex. We made sure to breakdown the different types of fabrics as well as their uses. Our goal is to make sure that you know your fabrics and to be able to make online purchases confidently each and every time - no matter what the garment is!
Knits vs wovens can be another pain if you are not 100% familiar with either fabric. In this 19-page guide, we have made the breakdown between the two as well as give you a guide to each fabric so that you can become familiar with which fabrics are woven and which fabrics are knit fabrics.
