Q : Can you explain about the different kinds of fabric and to which type of garment it suits best? - Sudha (7 months ago)
A :

Fabric market is like an ocean and regularly new blends are added.   Mainly you can classify to Natural fabrics like Cotton, silk etc and synthetic fabrics. If you show the image of the garment, the suitable fabric can be suggested. 


Q : Which number needle did you use & how much is the thread tension? - J. S. (2 years ago)
A :

I don't remember now but it must be a size 10 stretch needle and the thread tension is adjusted depending on the stitches.  Usually it is kept at 5 but would need to adjust if the stitches do not form perfectly.
