Mishii, I will press all your seams if you will cut all my fabric.  I see a deal going here.  ....... seam pressing I can do without issue and don't mind it.

Agreed Jonna.  I rarely watch anything live for this reason.  I watch the recorded version so I can skip ahead to get to the actual content.  Unfortunately, some of my favorite quilters have moved almost exclusively to this platform.

So an annoying thing about quilting is the fact that a bobbin doesn't last forever

The sewing machine has been around a long time (since the 1700s I think?).  You would think by now they would have figured out a way to put a spool of thread down there instead of having us fill bobbins.

Absolutely not.  I'm a terrible cutter....I get bored easily.  Therefore, I bought an Accuqilt and press all seams to the side.  Wheeee!

Of course if we all used chain stitching (which uses no bobbin) then we'd have nothing to bellyache about.  wink

But eventually the spool will run out too, hmmm?

It’s any of the cutting!!! Either bit by bit or all at once.  It is my nightmare
