Going to try knits again with ball point needle. I have a walking foot so will give this a shot. So frustrating having a regular needle pound into the fabric and jam up the bobbin. If it sounds like I have multiple issues sewing, that would be correct! 😊
WOW. I've been sewing for over two decades and this video helped me to actually understand things that I've used. I haven't taken my presser foot off for years since I first got it but this really described how and why I need it. I also have shyed from knits, even though I have a stock of them, but your explanation of ball point needles made me feel confident in trying it. This is a great video, I'll definitely be looking at more things you've posted.
Thankyou so much, lovely!
Thank you so much, I am going to make a dress. I feel brave now.
Hi Vanessa, I love your videos!! I have a request….Would you make a video explaining how negative easy works? Every time I use a knit sewing pattern to make something for myself using my body measurements instead of the finished measurements, it turns out huge on me. Why is this? But if I use the ready to wear size I buy at the store then it fits, but sometimes it's too small for me as well. I'm tired of wasting fabric and time. I will be forever grateful!! 🙂
dude oh my God thank you!!!!!
Is your app ever going to be available ? I can never find it.
Thanks so much!!!
You're the best!
Very informative, thank you! Question: how do I avoid skipped stitches when sewing through many layers of fabric such as binding a neckline? I've tried different threads, tension and walking foot but still seem to have some missed stitches here and there.
Thank God I found your video! I'm about to sew a knit dress and could not figure out which way to lay the pattern. And I would have used the wrong needle. Thank you! I'll definitely be a subscriber!
What is your app name?thank you
Ack yes, thanks! Can't wait to start on my cosplay dress knowing I won't destroy it in the process 😂

I've watched serval videos about this subject but yours was BY FAR the best! Thank you for actually teaching me something!
