Hello,

I’m looking for knit interfacing.  Does anyone know where I can find any?  Thanks

    If by "knit" interfacing you mean stretchable, it is usually stocked with the bolts of the rpoduct in fabric stores.  You might have to ask, because stock can vary by when restock comes in.

      Palady,

      Yes, I meant flexible and stretchable preferably in both directions.  Thanks for the web address for the The Sewing Place.  That's a wonderful site and it has several options for me to use.

    I found another way when I used one of Kwik Sew patterns #3497. It uses a clear Framilon elastic all along the neckline and looks really good. No stiffening of the neckline from interfacing.

      Rekha,

      I'm always looks for a way to be creative.  Looking forward to exploring this method.  Do you have any "lessons learned" to share about using this method?

      Thanks for sharing!

        I couldn't use the serger to sew the elastic on to the knit because as the elastic is stretched so is the knit and the elatic ends up being doubled. So I used the old fashioned sewing machine and used zig zag stitches. Worked out good.

        Knits give me problems at the edges - they keep rolling and no amount of ironing will stop them from rolling. Any cures for this?

          A wide 3 or 4 thread overlock on the serger is my personal favorite.  No more problems with rolling seam allowances.  Mary

            Are you referring to putting together of the elastic band to the edge of knit
