Re: Video: How to Sew and Install a Sleeve Head

Great tip. I'll try it for some tees. I have sloping shoulders and almost always use shoulder pads which also supports the sleeve and makes my waist look smaller, too!

Re: National Serger Month Expert Chat with Pamela Leggett

Why don't you have access other than Facebook? Many people choose not to have Facebook accounts due to security issues and concerns.

Re: Video: How to Bind a Sheer Edge

I like the video- very informative. I did NOT like having to watch the very loud ad preceding the video. I won't view any more videos on this site.

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting Volumes 1-4

Having seen snippets of these on the sewing shows, these techniques elevate the ordinary and provide the education to make that garment beautiful. This info isn't easily accessible in one collection, so this set will be very special and will motivate me to extend my skills to obtain extrordinary, professional results. !

Re: Video: Bias Binding

So many tutorials on binding show working on a straight flat piece of fabric. These are useful for the basic idea but there is a better way demonstrated by Louise Cutting in the Insider Techniques DVD in which you don't press the folded bias until the last step - allows for the natural roll of the cloth and makes a very lovely and professional looking bias binding. Check out Louise's guide on bias bindings on the DVD.

Re: Four Chances to Win Big with BERNINA!

Ditto above. I have never opened a Facebook account after reading the forms and disclosures. No, TJ Sews, you're not the only Threads reader without a Facebook account.

Re: Video: Bias Binding

Great series! Now we need to know how to measure and join the ends and the best way to finish around zippers, etc.
