Re: "Patching the Hole" in My Stabilizer to Do Multiple Embroideries Saved My HTML Tee!

Aw! I hope your hand feels better soon! I love this tip. I got tired of throwing a bunch of stabilizer away as well so the ones I could save (tear aways, cut away, watersoluble) I put into ziplock baggies. I use them for smaller hoopings or on the wrong side of the fabric for decorative stitching or buttonholes.

Re: How to Sew a Button Perfectly Every Time

Isabellas_Quilts : I would suggest the Coats Dual Duty Heavy XP that I used in the posting. It is fresh on the market and I seriously had such an easy time using it. It is simular to a topstitching thread, very durable and heavy, so it would be great to use on a leather jacket. I would suggest getting a very sharp needle for going through the leather with though!

That's awesome Jenny! We'll have to stay in touch and set something up. I love meeting people in my area that love all this creative stuff!
