Sewing knits / Video

Live chat on Sunday: Sewing with knits

My first livestream on YouTube was so much fun, I loved chatting with you guys! So I’m gonna brave it again this Sunday and the topic I’ve chosen is one of my fave sewing things – namely sewing with knits.

Topics I want to discuss in the chat

Is a regular sewing machine enough when sewing with knits? 

Using a walking foot when sewing knits, yay or nay?
Zede and Mallory of Sewing Out Loud have done a very interesting episode on this topic – and their verdict is nay. Personally, I tried it a few times when I first bought my walking foot 10 years ago, but was underwhelmed, and have not used the foot since for knits. But I know many people recommend it, so I would love to hear your experiences with it and if you have any tips!

How to keep knits from stretching out, especially when hemming

Skipped stitches and how to avoid them

Worst knits to work with

Is getting a coverstitch machine worth the money?

Plus whatever else comes up in the chat!


When: Sunday 24th September. 8 PM Central European Time/2 PM US Eastern Standard Time

Where: Direct link to the stream

    Oh Johanna I would love to join you but our time difference prohibits it sadly – your 11 AM is 3 AM for me which is not doable for me. I’ll have to watch it later which I’m sure will be good!

      Yes those time zones make it tricky! I do it as late as possible for me (8PM here in Central Europe) but that makes it tricky for people living on other continents. But at least that means it’s daytime in North America, but unfortunately night/early morning in other parts of the world 🙁

        This is great news! When I looked at the time you would be live it said, “11:00 AM” and I thought that was YOUR time – but 8:00 PM your time is 11:00 AM my time! hahaha the converter had already been applied to my time. Thank you for getting back to me Johanna – I will be able to join you after all on Sunday!
