Creating With Needle & Thread
Good morning everyone, it is nice to be back with everybody. It is supposed to be a beautiful, warm day here in Halifax. I really hope so, we have had some very frosty mornings here lately.
Today my sewing tip is really a couple of sewing definitions.
When you hear someone talking about the "drape" of a fabric, what they are referring to is how it hangs or falls from a bolt, dressform or the human body.
When someone refers to the "hand" of a fabric they speak of the actual feel and texture of a fabric.
Comments are more than welcome.
Until tomorrow, happy sewing everyone.

There's a great article in the newest Threads magazine on understanding the "hand of the fabric" in case anyone is interested.
