  1. Maybe you can answer this, How do I keep knits from stretching so mych when I sew the seams. I have released the pressure as much as I can.

  2. Thank you so much! I especially like the Sewing Journal. I have been sewing my entire life, MANY years LOL, and never thought about doing this, Great idea, and I plan to start today.

  3. Thank you for the various cheat sheets! They all look like issues that will help me. An area I would love to find help with is concerning neckline interfacing. For some reason I just can’t figure out patterns and what they’re saying to do. Has anyone found something that is helpful in this area?
    Thank you all very much!
