Default Re: Do you wash or not wash (your fabric)

I think that most sellers do NOT pre-wash anymore. (at least thats the consensus on most sewing forums) If you're using fabric from JoAnns or walmart I probably would, but if youre using the more expensive designer cottons Ive noticed no shrinkage. That being said, I always pre-wash if it had light and dark colors together to prevent bleeding.

Oh, and of course always pre-wash knits
