'Know your materials' is a ten-page, downloadable booklet I wrote specifically for beginners in sewing. It helps to know textiles and provides guidance on how to determine the properties of a material or how to choose the right one for your project.
What do you find in the booklet?
- The two basic grouping systems that determine the properties of a fabric.
- Methods on how to determine which material a category falls into and how you will be able to work with it.
- QR codes and links to videos showing how a material is made; looking at these helps you understand how the material works easily.
