I'm sitting here thinking about
I admit that ... I don't get it. I can't understand nor imagine why anyone would want to gunk up their fabric with starch. Unless maybe you don't have a walking foot, then I am able to make some sense out of it.
When I was young (prior to permanent press) we starched shirts while ironing and I remember being glad that they weren't my shirts and that I wasn't going to have to wear them.
Luckily, "To each his own".
I sew 99% of everything I sew with a walking foot. It's the best $150. I've ever saved and spent and when it gives out, I will buy another. But I just can't even think about starch. Yuk. But am I missing something here?
So, if you starch and you have a walking foot, I'd love for you to explain to me why starch your fabric too?...cause I'd love to be able to say, "oh, I get it now".
