This page is reserved for discussion on machines and needles. Anyone can ask a question or pitch in with an answer … you don’t have to wait for me to answer it! Do you want to know how to use a twin needle top stitch, which type of needle to use for lycra or how to do use the binding attachment? Well here is where you can seek advice or give it!
If you’ve read any of my blog you’ll know I keep trying to avoid the topic of sewing because I need to place emphasis on the pattern making. Afterall that’s what the site is all about … teaching fashion students how to make patterns for ready-to-wear close fit stretch garments. While the site isn’t necessarily aimed at home sewists, I do realise there’s probably more of you reading the site these days! Let’s try to keep to sewing questions rather than duplicating pattern topics covered elsewhere on the site, although I understand sometimes overlap is necessary!
