Stretch Knit Fabric Sewing


Stretch Knit Fabric Sewing: Tips & Tricks
• Use a Ball Point Needle to help prevent skipped stitches in seams that could result if using Regular Point Needle
• Set machine for a stretch stitch, so that the seam will stretch when the fabric is stretched
• Use polyester thread or texturized nylon thread which offers more elasticity in seams
• Be careful not to stretch the fabric from in front or back while sewing the seam, which can cause the seam to become distorted.
• Knits don’t unravel, so you can trim seam allowances after sewing to reduce in the seams
• Bonus tip: For heavier weight stretch fabrics like fleece or , use an Even Feed/Walking Foot to help the thicker fabric layers feed smoothly and evenly
