The essential guide for every sewer just got better! AH New Fabric Savvy is updated to include detailed information on 107 different fabrics, must-know information on determining fabric content, working with knits, working with different types of interfacing as well as removing stains and choosing lining material; recommended tools and notions; illustrated reference sections on seams, details, closures and hems; 476 photographs and 110 illustrations. Organised alphabetically, the 107 fabrics include old favourites-like cotton, wool, knits and silks-to new options, some of which you might never have heard of or sewn with--synthetics; those that resist water, sun, stains, and wrinkles; those made from animal hides (and, of course, their faux cousins); those regenerated from wood pulp; and many more.
