I don't have one most common error, I have many! Just to name a few: points not matching correctly, cutting errors, wandering seams, sewing the back of the fabric as if it were the front, going past the ¼ inch mark when I'm setting in patches, thread nests on the back while machine quilting,. But the solution for all of them is the same. Take my time! I'm not in a rush, I do this for my own pleasure, I enjoy almost all of the processes except for basting, and I rarely have a deadline. When I get a project finished it's exactly at the right time. So going slowly and patiently prevents almost all those errors.
Can extra baths be used to make the fabric dark enough for African American women?
I'm returning to sewing after 40 years of making almost no clothing, though for 20 of those years I was making quilts. But quilts are flat, don't have facings, and only have darts when I forget to use my walking foot and something puckers.
Now that I'm getting my feet wet with garment sewing again, I'd like to learn all the tricks, tips, and tools that have developed over the past 40 years.
I can't see the video. I continuously get the message "The video stream is unavailable. Please try again later." Has anyone else had this problem and solved it?
It's really frustrating! The video is unavailable although I am advised to try again later.
This isn't the first time I've tried to view a Threads video, only to find that I couldn't.
Hey guys, if you're not planning to make a video generally available, don't send us e-mails about it.
Assuming that you do lose 25% of the ribbon's length, you would need to add 33% to the desired width. Chances are that's not a problem, because I expect Mr. King has done it this way with his measurements and it worked out fine.
You should also check out the dealer. If you are fortunate to live in an area where there are two or more dealers of your chosen brand, visit them all and spend some time asking questions. If you can, find customers of the various dealers and ask them whether they are pleased.
Support is an important part of a successful customer-dealer relationship, so you should take time to investigate how good the support will be.
