    I missed your video on the felt Christmas bulbs garland. Is it possible to get an email with the pattern

    I personally would’ve used dark green for the base and thread, so it looked like the real thing. You could metallic fabric for some pizzazz.

    It would be nice if you would put cc (closed captioning) on all your videos. I know there are many of us Deaf and hard of hearing people who do crotchet and knit would appreciate it and learn a lot.

    I am very desperate. I made a sweater for my husband and the person that was helping me didn’t tell me how or where to put the button holes. So I finished the sweater without button holes. Please tell me if button holes can be made after the sweater. I bought grograin and I have the buttons. Can button holes be made after the grograin is put in place and where do I take the sweater to have this done. I am so embarrassed . What could be done on the sweater now. Please help.

    To put in lights make sure to use LED due to heat. I also caution that light does not shine through felt very well so they would not show much unless a different material is used to make the colored area of .bulb.

    I am left handed, have been sewing for 45 years and buy my specialty lefty scissors from Famore Cutlery. Great service!

    you could even use the 505 to hold pattern in place if you don’t want to pin or hold them

    why not use invisible thread? much better in not seeing the thread if they don’t want to switch out the different colors or wanting to use white
