I have read several articles/forums on the topic of pre-washing/not pre-washing fabric. I use quality fabrics. For sewing purposes, I choose to pre-wash. For quilting, I'm not sure. I've read ~pre-washing takes out the sizing (true) and it changes the feel of working with the fabric. My concern/question: If fabric is not pre-washed and fabric did shrink, would long arm machine top stitching prevent finished quilt from 'buckling'?
Thanks in advance for all replies.
