    For towels, can't you also use water soluble stabilizer? That is what I had been using. Using Bridal Tulle is something I am going to have to try. It is certainly cheaper! Thanks for a great lesson.

    Hello, I’m wondering if you could me get information on how to run my Janmone Horizon memory craft 1500 V2. I inherited my sister sewing machine and unfortunately I don’t have any of the instruction manuals. I’ve been trying to learn and teach myself but I’m having a lot of trouble. Wondering if you could help me figure out where to go and get these details so I can use this machine.

    Masking tape IS painter's tape! It is not "more sticky": it's the same exact item.
