All of our attention lately has been getting our first product lines ready for sale. Horrifically, this means no backpacking.
I've also been thinking that I want to share some of what I have been learning about sewing these lightweight, slippery fabrics. Bear with me, I've only been sewing for a couple of years and it's nearly all been on Ardeth products.
I don't pin. I don't even pin, then remove the pins as I am sewing up to them. But, I do pin to set up my pieces.
A quick pin at my starting location helps to keep the slippery nylons that we work with in place until I can get a few stitches in, but after that, I remove it.
Granted, I am usually on my needle-feed machine, so that helps greatly.
