Video: How To Sew Knits – A Beginner’s Guide

This post contains affiliate links.

This video is dedicated to one of my favourite topics, namely how to sew with knits. I have never really done a proper introduction video on this topic, so I thought it was about time. In this video, I talk about which machines to use, best seams and needles, the easiest knits to sew plus give you lots of tips on how to succeed with sewing stretchy knits, regardless of your equipment.

One big thing that I address in this video is how to handle the fabric while sewing and using different tools and techniques to improve the result, especially when sewing stretchy fabrics on a sewing machine, which can be tricky at times since our regular machines really are optimised for sewing wovens, not knits. But it can be done for sure!
