I enjoyed the presentation. Such a cute project!! Thank you so much.
where can I buy the weights ect
Please recommend the best 500-600$ sewing machine for consistent straight/ zig zag sewing
I’ve had a white 2 singers and a brother and they all fail in straight stitch and zig zag sewing. If i go to a store they’ll recommend what they sell… i would really appreciate a recommendation. Thanks u sally
Serious safety issues with the rotary cutter. Twice left it open on the cutting table. Consistently had hand in front of cutter, even cut towards herself. Accident waiting to happen. Rest of class is wonderfil.
Loved this fun project!
I just finished 4 of these cute pouches for my grandkids. I thought Emily said something about sharing pics, but I’m not seeing where to do that? Thanks for the cute idea!
am I too early to see the project now?
Thank you for sharing!

Hi from Sydney, Australia.
Where is it that you get your long zippers?
nHi! From Western PA!
Will this be available on youtube after the live stream?
Interesting pouch. Will enjoy wayching your demonstration🐇
What a cute pouch! Will enjoy wayching your demonstration🐇
This was a great class. One suggestion I would make for the upcoming classes or future classes is to place a close up camera on the sewing machine so we can see how they are sewing the item. Thanks again doe the classes
Hi from Crown Point, Indiana!
Hi from Rossville Illinois
Since you’re cutting the zipper anyway, you can cut it a little longer than you need at first. That way you can leave the zipper pull outside of the stitching area while you insert the zipper. Then move the pull in, cut the tape and close off the end.
I always use a zipper that is too long. However, when I put in a zipper, I dont cut the length until AFTER I put in one side so I can make sure the length works in what I am doing.
I forgot to add: Make sure you don’t cut the stitching!!
Quilters use cotton and typically we don’t use pinking shears. We do use decorative pieces like the green material for many appliques make flowers and many other decorations.
The technical name for “edge clipping” is notching. When done on outside curves you cut a small V out of the seam & that gets rid of the excess bulk. I have also used pinking shears for this step.
Watching from west palm beach florida where it is a balmy 85 degrees.
Enjoying the program.
I hate pins! I use clips if I need to hold stuff together. But I am with you- I can’t be. Others unless it is crucial.
I like to pin but use the small clover clips when quilting and when sewing with kids. No getting poked.
very cute not sure that I will have a little one to sew it for thank you for the demo
I use pins on very slippery fabrics, but not on stable or more heavy fabrics
Pinking shears are more for keeping things from fraying (like you said). To get it to lay nicely I do edge clipping and also on collars cut the layers one thinner than the other.
Do you have any basic classes? I need to learn the basics of sewing.
Great Craft& Class thank you from NC 🙂
Re: Pinking shears vs. clipping: Does it make a difference whether the curve being cut are concave or convex?
anxious to see your program.
