My sincerest of apologies

Dear Stretch Hemp Jersey,

I am writing with my sincerest apologies to you. I'm sure I don't have to remind you of the humiliation I must have caused you several weeks ago as I badmouthed hemp jersey. I admit I was blinded by the sensual qualities of bamboo jersey- the beautiful sheen, the buttery softness. But now I must admit I was very wrong to write off hemp jersey as a whole. I was presumptuous in assuming all hemp jersey was created equally- and as the old saying goes, I've made an ass out of you and me. You and lycra make the most wonderful team- so easy to get along with in all aspects, excellent at working well with others. Even my most trusted assistant Mr. Kenmore Serger and Ms. Huskystar Sewing Machine hold you in the highest esteem after dealing with Stretch Bamboo Jersey yesterday. While they are the most open-minded assistants I know, and don't hold judgements until working with you fabrics, they fully agree that you are much easier and wonderful to work with than the single-minded Stretch Bamboo Jersey- who caused hell in the sewing studio yesterday.

I am happy to announce that I will be using you in all my designs that I was planning on using the boisterous Stretch Hemp Bamboo in and I look forward to a wonderful working relationship with you. Once again, please accept my sincerest apologies for assuming all hemp jersey was created equally, for now I know that you, Stretch Hemp Jersey, have proven me wrong.

Most humbly yours,

PS- Please let your cousin Regular Hemp Jersey know that although we had a wonderful relationship in the past, I have to move on to bigger and better things- you Stretch Hemp Jersey!

There's a little friend I like to use for interventions in situations like these: freezer paper. Iron it on and it will stabilize just about anything. The only drawback is picking all the little pieces of paper out of the seam, so it's not so hot for production work.
