Tips and Tricks Every Quilter Should Know

-Use the same ruler throughout your whole project
– To thread a needle lick the needle not the thread (be sure it is the side with the eye and not the sharp end)
-Change your needle every 8-12 hours of sewing
– To remember when you changed the needle use a sticky note on your machine with the information on it. You can also record what type and size of needle it is.
-An accurate 1/4″ seam allowance is very important
-Press, don’t iron! (pressing requires you to lift the iron to move it from one spot to the other. Ironing you don’t like the iron and you could stretch and distort your fabric.
