Sewing With Cotton

I grew up sewing with cotton. When knit fabrics became available to me, it was in the late 1960s. I made a mess of most of my projects. Neither myself nor my sewing machine knew how to handle the new knit fabric. Today, I think the industry has done a better job supplying us with more user-friendly fabric and thread. I still prefer sewing with cotton. And wearing cotton. But 100% cotton has been fading away. A lot of the modern fabrics feel like plastic. I love to sew though so I do the best I can with what I find. Suellen Ocean is the author of many books on diverse topics. Her books are available here:
