old dog, new trick   General Discussion

I've always struggled a bit with keeping my seam allowance even, especially on long straight stretches like borders.  Well tonight I was using my FW and felt like I was driving on ice, I was wobbling all over the place using my usual method of holding the fabric in the front - 

well for some reason I got the bright idea to hold it this way, repositioning my fingers every few inches.  Wow, it was so straight and easy.  Why did I never try this before!  Probably "seams" obvious, but definitely a light bulb moment for me.

Well Duh!! I'm kidding Hon. I"ve done that myself. usually things go well but not always. guiding it along is important. I will pay more attention too that.
