Tame Fabrics With Tissue Paper

Threads #186, Aug./Sept. 2016

In this article from Threads #186 (August/September 2016), Abby Riba shares some tips on how to use tissue paper to your advantage. She writes:

When you’re machine sewing, a layer of tissue provides support for flimsy fabrics and mitigates lateral shifting, whether you’re straight stitching or serging. You’ll be set to sew fine seams in delicate fabrics. Try using it when sewing narrow hems, too.
