SEWING SLIPPERY FABRICS Thursday September 5th, 12-2pm Instructor: Mildred Del Rio

Posted on May 16, 2019

Slippery fabrics such as silks, chiffons and other natural and synthetic slinky materials are beautiful, but they are a little tricky to work with in comparison to stable fabrics like most cottons and linens. While these fabrics do require a considered approach, the good news is that the basic techniques are straightforward and well within your reach. There’s no reason to avoid working with these fabrics. Rather, learn how to handle them so that you get great results!

Mildred Del Rio will help you conquer these lovely fabrics. These techniques will significantly improve the quality of your sewing. You don’t need to be an expert to put these into practice, but you do need to have basic hand and machine sewing knowledge.
