Did You Know?

Did you know you can use your zipper foot not only for installing zippers but to also get close to the edge of the fabric with your stitches when doing an edge stitch?
One of the tricks to sewing straight lines is to find something on the sewing machine to follow. Sometimes you have to find something on top of the fabric to follow because the fabric covers up all the lines on the machine. When you're sewing a pocket, collar or anything that needs to have a stitch line close to the edge try your zipper foot. Follow the edge of the foot with the edge of the fabric and you will get a stitch  real close to the edge.

Until next time, Enjoy your moments ~ make them "sew" much fun, Cindy
