Can I use the Bonded Polyester Tex 45 thread in my domestic sewing machine?
Our bonded polyester threads are great for bag making and top stitching. Bonded polyester Tex 45 is a thicker weight thread than your standard polyester threads e.g Gutermann sew all. We recommended you use a size 90-14 or 100-16 needle in your machine. Bonded polyester Tex 45 threads work great on semi industrials and most domestic sewing machines. Please read your sewing machine's manual to check compatibility before ordering. If your machine will not hold the large thread spools we recommend getting one of our adjustable large thread holder stands available here

Are the vinyls, jelly and TPU domestic machine friendly?
On each listing we provide how thick these vinyls approximately will be. They 
can work on most domestic machines, with the correct feet we recommend a teflon or walking foot on your sewing machine. You may need to adjust your tension on the machine. We also recommend using a bulky seam aid / hump jumper which we sell here

Pre-order Fabrics

Canvas Cotton-Linen Fabrics
Fabrics which are woven from natural fibres have characteristics and other irregularities in the yarns which are features and not therefore treated as weaving faults.

Custom Printed Bases:
Sometimes printed bases may have a slight odour due to the way they are manufactured. We recommend letting them air out in a well ventilated area. When ordering custom printed fabric, please understand colours could vary slightly on different fabric bases vs digital images.

Why do the colours look different?
We use a combination of stock images from manufacturers and our own photographs. We have tried our best to represent the colours as accurately as possible. However, we can't guarantee an exact match to the fabrics shown as colours vary on different screens and devices. Therefore fabrics may look different upon arrival. When ordering custom printed fabric, please understand it could vary slightly on different fabric bases vs digital images.

We try to use eco friendly mail bags and cardboard boxes. The packaging we use to post your orders is mostly fully recyclable or compostable and we encourage you reuse the packaging your Little Stitcher Sews order arrives in.
