An introduction to Fabrics and Fibres. When you just start out with sewing, it feels like you have a lot to learn – not just with stitches, following pattern instructions and making sure your items fit, you also need to know what fabrics work with different patterns to make sure your beautiful handmade item works in the best way possible.
It can feel like a minefield, but I want to make it easier for you to learn the differences between natural and man made fibres! Having been a textiles teacher for many years and a professional tailor before that, I have years and years of practical experience to offer you in this free course. Learn in a day what took me many years!

- Natural fibres: the basics
