Patchwork & Quilting ... Welcome to the Darkside / Re: Fabric habits
« on: January 19, 2021, 19:39:23 PM »
No problem @b15erk  the darkside isn't exclusive.
I posted it on The Dark Side ( it says where it's posted at the too of the page of replies ) because that's all I do and I didn't want to hijack space from the garment threads which are far more numerous.
Perhaps you'll become a more frequent visitor @b15erk ......We have biscuits  :devil:

Sorry @BrendaP and @Kenora if there's any confusion.
I only mean for p and q, as that's all I do.
That's why I asked the question on The Dark Side Board.
I could never be accurate enough to make clothes and wouldn't know how to begin so I only know 1/4" seams  :|

I never pre wash fabric, never starch and never press seams open .
Lately I have been reading that people usually do all those things.
I know why they do, but wondered what was the norm on here

Another new week, fresh and unsullied  for us all to enjoy :dance:
Having, hopefully ironed out most of the kinks in my life, I'm ready to 're enter the melee that is TSP once again.
Housework, painting bannisters and a visit to B and Q are on the agenda today. I'm hoping to start a new sewing project this evening if I have any energy left.
Have a marvellous Monday friends  :grouphug:

A Good Yarn / Re: Looms and Weaving in General

Not surprised at the garment making @Ploshkin I know you're very accomplished. I thought any fabric would have to be at least 36" wide to be of any use . I didn't know it would be doubled.
Didn't mean to insult your ability or size, I'm just ignorant :|
I'm still interested in getting a loom but won't comment any more and show myself up :|
