Friday Fun Fact!

It's time for Interfacing, Part 3!
The final part!

Did you miss the last two? Check them out at the links here:

Interfacing part one

Interfacing part two

We've shared our tips on choosing your interfacing, now here are a few of our favorites! Please note, we try our best to keep everything we love in stock at all times, but in reality we just can't. Sometimes our faves will be temporarily out of stock.

French Fuse is a go-to choice for many types of sewing. Knits and wovens, light to medium weights, this is perfect! It even fuses well on silk! Usually comes in black and white.

Whisper Weft (pictured above right) and Armo Weft are both good for medium to heavy fabrics. A good fuse and great longevity wash after wash! These are our go-to choice for wool.

Hair Canvas (pictured middle right) often under the names Hymo or Acro, is a tailoring staple. Use it in the collars, lapels, and hems of fine tailored jackets and coats.

Imperial Broadcloth (pictured bottom right) plus its friends Imperial Batiste and Imperial Voile; cotton/poly blends that are ideal sew-in interfacings for shirtings and more. The voile is the most crisp, followed by the broadcloth, and the batiste is the softest.

Finally, Decor-Bond is our choice for chair covers, soft bags, and crafts. Use this to stabilize a cotton broadcloth and make it a little heftier!
