How to Choose the Right Fabrics

Video Length: 2:47
Produced by: Victoria North

While on the road at the American Sewing Guild conference we caught up with Threads contributing editor Mary Ray. Mary was nice enough to take some time out of her busy teaching schedule to share some tips for choosing the right fabrics for a project. 

Simply put fabrics in piles to see how well they go together, and you can mix colors, patterns, and textures to make your design have the most impact. Get out your scraps and follow your imagination with tips and inspiration from Mary Ray.
