May 18, 2007, Newsletter Issue #96: Fabric Layout

Tip of the Week

Most patterns are cut out with the fabric folded with selvage edges together. Keep the entire length of fabric on the table. Fabric hanging off the edge can distort the grain line. If you don't have a large enough table, work on a hard floor or use a purchased cardboard cutting mat on a carpeted floor.
