I know how you feel. You’re excited, you have an exciting new pattern and gorgeous new fabric and you just want to get the scissors into it all, and launch at the sewing machine, and glory in the noise and the pins and the thread, and listen to your favourite CD or audio book while everybody else is out of the way and/or asleep, and just sew.
Whether you’re a new or a seasoned sewer, this is your special time when you can really breathe freely, loosen up your shoulders and relax into creativity, chaos and construction. You really don’t want to delay it for the sake of Extra Laundry.
What’s all this fuss over pre-washing anyway? How crucial is it? Really?
