Ponteroma Knits

New postby MartySews2 on Mon May 09, 2011 9:27 pm

On Saturday, I went to Hancock Fabrics to buy a KwikSew pattern #2900 for a top & found some Ponteroma knits. I have never heard of them before but they felt good & were in some lovely prints which will work for my wardrobe. At $12.99 a yard, they were pricey but I'm going to give 2 of them a try. The clerk said that they just got them in the store. Has anyone else worked with this fabric? Any tips that you want to share? I will be making the tops on my serger.

I Googled them and saw the solids. They are a rayon/poly blend -- at least the ones I looked at were. I think that would be a nice knit blend. It looks like they are JoAnn's own store brand, which is usually nice fabric. We want to see the finished products, you know.
