For sewing, you have to choose a suitable kind of yarn according to the fabric properties and the final use. If yarn is too delicate or too weak to use, it can ruin the fabric. If yarn which is selected is too thick, it can also tear the fabric. The type of stitching to be done on the fabric should be specified, some stitches are decorative and some are simple.
