    What sewing projects do you recommend to start out with for my 21 month old granddaughter (almost 2 years old). Clothing, crafts, play clothes. Also I have an old apron that my grandmother made for me and my m thinking about replicating it with new fabric.

    Enjoying the CRAFTS! I have a problem with the top stitch showing through on the underside…I did a Halloween project with the black in the bobbin and orange top…I tried to adjust it to normal (auto) then tried 3 but no help (A Janome QCP). Will try rethreading. Do you think it could be adversely affected by two different threads (eg Poly cotton in top thread, cotton in bobbin)

    Hello from Illinois! After you get the perfect fit can you then use that pattern as a sloper or block? Not sure of the difference between the two. Can you explain?

    I am basically a new sewer. I am making a wall hanging design. I have a friend/mentor who tested the project herself and she told me that while the pattern calls for 1/4 “ seams, the reality is that I need scant 1/4” seams to make it work. I bought a magnet to align on my footplate but it slides. Any suggestions for SCANT 1/4” when machine doesn’t have the markings?

      You can tape a coffee stick or thick piece of cardboard (or something like this) with about a 3 inch length at the scant 1/4 inch mark to your machine with painters masking tape. so that the fabric slides along the edge at just a scant 1/4 inch. Otherwise use your 1/4 inch foot along the edge of the fabric but move your needle position one or two positions to the right to make a slightly narrower seam.
