Since the fabric is stretchy I would suggest sewing them on with stretchy thread. This may not be more efficient but it will be more secure because you will then have a bit of stretch where the feathers are secured when the material is stretched.

Here's an article from Threads magazine about how to sew feathers to fabric: ther-fringe It doesn't reference stretch fabric, but I think if you made smaller sections to allow the fabric to stretch in between them you'd be OK. Bottom line, though, sewing individual feathers onto anything is quite a task. Have you checked your local fabric store for feather trims? The feathers will already be attached to a fabric, and hopefully you'll be able to find one that has a streth backing. That would make the task a lot easier. Best of luck.
