The very characteristic that makes knits so comfortable to wear--the stretch--often frightens the home sewer. Connie Long's Sewing with Knits does away with the intimidation by demystifying all aspects of knitwear construction: layout and cutting, sewing smooth seams, edge finishing, inserting zippers, making buttonholes, and more. Long also teaches readers to achieve creative looks with fabric piecing and color blocking, and a chapter devoted to specialty knits explains how to work with swimsuit fabrics, stretch velvets and other napped knits, synthetic fleece, and novelty stretch. A very helpful chart shows at a glance exactly what techniques to use for seams, hems, and necklines for 15 different kinds of knit fabrics. Sewers already comfortable with the basics of working with wovens will find expert guidance on moving into the knitwear realm. --Amy Handy
From Library Journal
Sewing with knits can be tricky owing to the varying degrees of stretch inherent in the wide variety of stretch fabrics available today. Long, a frequent contributor to Threads magazine, covers techniques for working with a variety of stretch fabrics such as swimwear knits, Raschel knits, stretch velvet, and synthetic fleece. Full-color illustrations, line drawings, and a resource list nicely complement the text. The third in Taunton's "Focus on Fabric" series, this book is an excellent choice for public library sewing collections.

For so long this book has been insanely priced everywhere...I refused to "feed the greed" and an amicable sale was made.
