Previous Sessions Q&A
We’ve had eight sessions now. Hopefully you have had time to do some practicing of zippers and flat felled seams, made some mitered corners, learned more about stitch lengths on your machine and analyzed the grainlines of different fabrics. There are sure to be some questions so let’s open up our mics and have a give and take. I’d love to see how you are applying what you are learning and share your experiences.
