No, you don’t. You can use your regular sewing machine to sew knits. Check your owner’s manual for which stitches work well for stretch fabrics. Almost all machines have a zig zag stitch, that is my go-to stretch stitch. You just have to shorten the stitch length (bringing the zigs and zags closer together), be sure that you are sewing using the proper seam allowance, and trim off the seam allowance after each step.
Raw Edge– the edge of a piece of fabric that is not finished; the cut edge of fabric.
Right Side- the pretty side of the fabric, what you want to see on the outside when finished.
RSF- right sides facing, also called RST in other patterns which means right sides together.
WSF- wrong sides facing, also called WST in other patterns which means wrong sides together.
Press- using an appropriately hot iron to remove wrinkles or to crispen seams. When pressing, you should lift the iron to move to the next area to be pressed as to not distort the fabric.
Basting Stitch- a stitch used to temporarily hold two fabrics together that can be taken out later, also used to gather fabric. Use the longest straight stitch length setting on your machine to achieve a baste stitch.
SA- seam allowance, the distance between the edge of the fabric and the sewn line.
