Caring for Fabric


  • Before prewashing any fabric, a quick zigzag stitch or serge will keep the edges from fraying.
  • If you get fabric from a craft or fabric store without care and content labels, make your own labels to sew into finished garments. Make a fabric care label with fabric sheets made for your computer printer and sew into the garment.
  • Don’t store your fabric in direct sunlight. Sunlight can fade the showing fabric and leave you with multi-tonal fabric.
  • To protect fabric from dust or smoke, store neatly folded stacks in plastic bins or bags.
  • Preshrink fabric before you store it.
  • To test how a special fabric reacts to different pre-treatments (such as silk), create several small swatches and treat them differently. For example, press one with a press cloth and one without a press cloth.
  • If you are covering outdoor cushions or pillows with new fabric, use inexpensive plastic shower curtain liners to first cover the cushions with a waterproof layer before covering with the new fabric. You can also do this with purchased newly purchased items. This will reduce mildew.

These are all very useful tips. I always remember to sew the edges with a zig zag stitch especially very light chiffon and silks. As for storage, keeping the fabric in a clear plastic is a sure way to keep it from sun damage and it provides a great display too.
