  1. Yay! I found you! I recognized you the other day and told you I was about to start the lady skater dress.I am going to read all your tips for sewing knits. I must admit the printed pattern thing has slowed me down. It is still sitting on the kitchen table. I will let you know how it goes.


    1. Hi Kathy! I’m so glad you got in touch! I realised after we chatted the other day that I should have told you about the KW/Guelph sewing group we have on Facebook. It’s here: (Called the Grand River Sewcialists, if that link doesn’t work!) We get together for coffee and a chat about sewing once a month or so. Hope you can join us sometime! 🙂


  2. Hi Gilligan,
    Thanks you for all the awesome tips. I also had a question I thought maybe you could help me with. Knitted fabrics and fabrics with stretch. Are you supposed to handle these differently? I get that the knit won’t frey, where the women will. But other than that, do you see a big difference in working with them?
