PDF eBook

Not all fabrics are created equal. Stretchy knits. Bulky wools. Sheer organza. Faux fur. Real leather. Plush velvet. Every fabric has its own characteristic and comes with its own special challenges. To be forewarned is to be forearmed – that’s why smart sewers always check for the specific handling information in Fabric Savvy by sewing guru Sandra Betzina. And now there’s no waiting to get this important information because Fabric Savvy is immediately available as a downloadable ebook.

Take the guesswork out of choosing the right fabric. Browsing through a fabric store is always delight and there’s usually a gorgeous silk brocade, sparkling lame, or exotic African mudcloth that captures your fancy. More often than not, the fabrics that look so appealing can also be intimidating to work with, so what’s a sewer to do!

Get the right answers and avoid costly mistakes. To be sure that you’ll be as thrilled with the final results, consult Fabric Savvy before you do anything. With specs on 85 different fabrics, it provides the all-important answers to questions like these:

  • Is this fabric appropriate for the style of the garment?
  • Do you need to preshrink the fabric?
  • What needle, thread, stitch length and presser foot are required?
