Knit fabrics and knit sewing patterns are ere enjoying a resurgence in popularity. The fashions are easy to wear and require minimal care, plus there are so many fabric options! If you’re new to sewing, or if it has been awhile since you’ve sewn with knits, update your skills by watching the Sewing With Nancy TV series, Sew Knits With Confidence, online.
Knit Fabrics & Seams
- Learn streamlined ways to stitch or serge seams. You’ll see that I don’t like to “over sew” the fabric; less is more when it comes to sewing knits.
- Use your serger to effectively ease layers together. Sergers and knits are best buddies.
- Learn pressing tips for knits.
Add a quick, yet clean finish to the neckline, sleeve, or any other outer edge. Since knits are the ultimate no-ravel fabric, you’ll quickly build your sewing skills and gain stitching confidence.
You’ll never feel like your stitching in circles when you adapt the flat construction way of assembling knits. Set the sleeve in flat, stitch the underarm and side seams in one step—what a speedy way to sew!
Now for another color way!
All the techniques featured on TV, plus many more, are in my book, Sew Knits with Confidence.

The random winner of Fancy Footworks 2 is Karen Kampen. She said, I have so much enjoyed learning more about the presser feet on Sewing With Nancy. I am amazed at how useful they are for all my sewing projects. I would love to try the Satinedge Foot, as I do a lot of appliqué. The Teflon foot has been on my wish list for a while now, too, and I am intrigued by the Roller Foot. I always learn a lot from your videos and demos.
Bye for now,
