Re: Combine Topstitching and Binding for an Elegant Seam Finish

Very creative way to finish fabric that ends to misbehave.. I'm just dying to know what fish fabric is though. Can you please explain.
Thanks Ojolly for the tip with sweater fabric tip. Those really misbehave and can be just as difficult.

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

I recently started my own alteration company and I do a lot of work with thee only high school drama club. I basically sew the costumes for $5 an hour. I consider it my part in giving back to the community, plus I love to watch the plays put on. I used to work for a boutique consignment shop where ladies would purchase an item if it could be taken in here or hemmed. I soon had my machine at the shop, and during my breaks I would alter their garments. After the consignment shop sold, I started doing alterations at home. Since I became permanently disabled with RSD, a neurological disorder, I sew when I am able to. I've always been striving to learn new techniques. The money I make from my work goes right back into my business buying notions, books, and machines. I recently switched bedrooms, and now my studio is in the master bedroom, to accommodate my 8' by 4' press and cut table. Living on an island my business is finally taking off do to word of mouth and my community service. Since I have good days and bad days, the bad days I spend reading and research, and would love to add this set to my collection.
