Fabric Care: Did you know that “to wash or not to wash” your quilting fabric before you work with it is one of the most long-lasting, hotly debated conversations in quilting?
As a pattern designer (and former retail shop owner), I get asked that question constantly.
And the answer is …… it depends. You knew it wasn’t going to be just a quick, easy answer – right?
I’ve been researching the care of fabrics (particularly quilting cotton fabrics) for some time now and am working on a series of articles – check out the article on pre-washing quilting fabrics below.
Based on my testing – some of the products I have switched to can be found in the Laundry and Fabric Prep section of the Shop. I go into some detail about each one and how I chose those products.
