Nancy's Tip of the Month A seam sealant like Fray Check is a must to seal all serger thread tails or edges. If squeezed directly to the fabric, you may get more than you bargained for. Apply the sealant to a Q-tip and then dab your fabric for greater control.

Finding a needle in or out of a haystack!

You sit down at your sewing machine, ready to start a new project. Fabric? Check. Thread? Check. Correct presser foot? Check. New needle? Umm…
 I know they’re here somewhere… Here they are! No, those are Jeans needles, and I need Ballpoint. Maybe I can just use this one… Eek! Nope – it’s definitely too big for this t-shirt knit. Argh! Where did I put them!! And suddenly your relaxing afternoon of sewing turns into a frustrating search for a tiny package of needles.
That doesn’t happen to me (much) any more. I keep all my needles in a big plastic box. I’ve even labeled the sections!
