    I have purchased a piece of stretch suede. What size needle should I use in my machine and should I use a specialized needle. Any tips regarding sewing on this fabric would be appreciated. Also, what about pressing as I sew my garment? Can stitches be removed, if alterations are needed, without leaving pin/needle marks?

      *I would probably use a Schmetz MicroSharp needle in size 10 or 12. As for leaving needle holes in case of mistakes, cut off a small piece and play around with it on your machine, then rip the stitches out and see what happens after you press it. Do the holes disappear?Hope this helps!
