Sewing Your Jersey Fabric
Along with the actual Jersey Fabrics we are pleased to offer you all the 'bits and bobs' around the edges that make sewing Jersey easier and much more effective. For more info head to our Jersey Fabric Made Easy Info. Page.
However here are some crucial items:
Needles - Stitch with Jersey Ballpoint Machine Needles. The ball of the needle parts the Jersey fibres rather than piercing them to help ensure the elastic quality remain intact.
Thread - Stitch with Empress Thread Plus, it is twice as strong but not twice as thick as a standard general purpose sewing thread - so you can use the same needle. Ideal for heavier weight fabrics, stress seams etc.
Empress Thread Plus is included if you 'add a matching thread above'.
Interfacing - Vlieseline (Vilene) Stretch Interfacings are created especially for working with fabrics such as Jersey. They add a little more body to make sewing easier.
The manufacturer advises the following care instructions however we always advise testing a small piece first to make sure you are 100% happy.
