Fusible Interfacing: A Peek inside the Video Class
The Joy of Fusible Interfacing
What can we make with fusible interfacing? How do we use fusible interfacings in our sewing and garment project?
Follow along as Marta Alto demonstrates the joy of working with Fusible Interfacing from A-Z in this video class from Palmer Pletsch. Step by step instructions including the full range of fusible products available from our main shop store.
Marta Alto and Pati Palmer have been using and testing fusible interfacings since the 1970s. Pati worked for an interfacing manufacturer that developed the first fusible. The team has pioneered interfacing education. Frustrated by the confusion of so many interfacing choices, they spent four years finding simple solutions. Their line of PerfectFuse™ interfacings is featured in this video.
