Re: Perfect Machine Tension Every Time

There is no such thing as a pressure foot on a home sewing machine. And, possibly commercial machines as well.

Some home sewing machines have a pressure adjustment of the presser foot which can be changed. Less pressure for knits and sheers,for example.

Re: Four Serging Techniques

CKReed, one method for checking the tension/correct threading of a serger is to use a different color for each looper and needle.

Lift the presser foot, open the tensions and take any other steps given in the manual for threading the applicable serger.

Lower the presser foot and set the tension mid-range. Then test and tweak as needed.

Longest layer next to the feed dogs will ease it to match the top layer. The pant leg needs ease at the front thigh as this is the fullest part of the leg; crotch to knee.

Re: Free Patterns for Three Apron Styles

I make aprons, I wear aprons. They help keep the clothing clean when crafting, cooking, cleaning, & gardening.

Enlarging the view of the pattern selection on-screen indicates the obvious...the grid is 1".

When comments turn to drama, I want to shout "shut-up and sew!"

Re: Video: Manuel's Free-Motion Embroidery Technique

So breathtaking. I first read about Manuel and his shop in Threads a few years ago. I visit, and have recommended, this video many times since it first appeared in Threads.
