Lapped zipper how-to story

cookrose | Posted in Feedback on Threads on

Hi Threads editors,

I don’t know if it’s just that my spatial reasoning issues are getting the best of me, but I’m danged if I can figure out how to accomplish the installation of a lapped zipper according to Rosebud’s instructions in the current issue of Threads — without ever removing the work from the machine, that is.

Two steps — first the underlap seam, then the overlap — is what I’m coming up with when I try this.

Can anyone let me know where I might be going wrong?

    Wow! This sounds like an origami puzzle. I don't have that issue but am anxious to see this. solo

    Hi Roseana: Would you mind to send your question to our Threads editorial email if you think that there is a technical error in the magazine. It's listed on the masthead of the magazine. If it is a true technical error concern, we will be sure to address. If it's more a matter of having someone explain it to you, I would suggest that you could post in another section of this board. Gatherings is a place where readers support one another and I think you'll find many helping hands here. Thanks for your letter!

      I really have no idea if there's an error in the service piece I mentioned, and I'm not suggesting there is one. I was hoping other readers could point me in the right direction, that's all. I'll certainly look for another section on which to post my question. Thanks for your reply.

        Sounds good---and let me know how it works out--I'm just worried your post would get lost in the shuffle here! Good luck!
