I have been sewing since my grandmother started teaching my hand stitching when just 6 or 7 years old. She then taught me on a treadle Singer machine, which is now my treasure. I own Berninas and a Babylock serger, along with a 40+ year old Good Housekeeping zigzag machine that was my first machine as a teenager. Love all crafts but sewing is my love.

Re: Hot Tea Emery Pincushion

Very creative! Where did you find emery to fill it with? Is it readily available?

Re: Video: A Turtleneck Finish for Knits

This is absolutely THE most clear and easily understood instruction for this technique!!! A must before attempting this! I won't fear making turtlenecks ever again! Thank you, thank you for making this available!

Re: Video: A Neckline Binding for Knits

This is THE BEST tutorial! Explains not only how, but why! Video clearly shows every step. Now I feel confident to go try a t-shirt again!

Re: Circular Vest

To Georgia_red: I believe the instructions to turn under the "short ends" means to turn under the short side -- you have basically a rectangle of binding and the "ends" of the strip would be the short side of the rectangle. So you are turning under the raw edge on the ends of the binding...Hope this helps. Good luck!
