A lot of the modern machines have a setting on them that do stretchy stitches Kim, which are for the jersey and stretchy materials used so often today. Have a look in your instruchions to see if your machine has that setting, I will dig out my booklet and let you know what mine says. The old way of doing it is with parchment/greaseproof paper between all layers to let the machine move it through the feeders and it not to slip against itself, that just tears off when the seam is done. Thats how I learnt to do but the stretchy stitches are a doddle.
