    At 3:13 you mentioned some fabric stores refer to 2-way knit stretch fabrics as 4-way.
    My question is: why would that be so if 2 way is moderate stretch with the main stretch at the lengthwise? Thank you in advance for your time and response.

    Can you give some advice about how to order knits online? My local fabric shop doesn't offer much variety. I enjoy your videos. Thanks for all the hard work.

    Hi from Sweden- on the last part of the video, when you are showing a double needle, is that also a walking foot you're using? Thanks for the great tutorial.

    Thank you, PP. Scared to death of sewing knits. Even to shorten a knit shirt. Thanks so much for this–super helpful! I'm closer to giving it a try. 🙂

    hoe do we know when we change the fabric on the back of the simplicity pakets because im trying to make a Lolita dress and it has to have three different fabrics and I don't know how to add it up because I dont know when the fabric changes

    I am new to sewing with stretchy knits. What type of sewing machine are you using with the overlock stitch… I will be buying one soon, but don't think I can handle a serger/baby lock…

    Informative of course; kudos.

    But one hot button is mispronouncing words where it actually changes the meaning of what is spoken.

    Example: sewing/textile term such as 'Selvedge/Selvage' ["An edge produced on woven fabric during manufacture that prevents it from unravelling."] versus 'Salvage' ["As a noun, salvage is the act of rescuing items from a disaster like a shipwreck or fire — or the rescued goods themselves.

    As a verb, salvage means to collect or rescue that sort of item, or more generally to save something from harm or ruin."]. Selvedge ['sel-'] as in Sell; Salvage ['sal-'] as in Salad.
