I also like the feel of sewing with stiffer fabric-- I think the stitch quality is much improved and it's easier to get a good consistent quarter or scant quarter inch seam. Starch also works great as a temporary glue for cutting multiple layers at a time.

Yeah- What Rob said! Makes life so much easier when seeking any degree of precision.
