I am having difficulty making buttonholes in Polar Fleece fabric. The fabric does not want to feed through. HELP!

Put a tear away stabilizer under the area where you want the buttonhole. This prevents the feed dogs from sinking into the fabric and not feeding correctly. Place a layer of water soluble stabilizer on top of the fabric where the button hole is to be made. Select a stretch buttonhole setting if you have it on your machine.

Alternative closures: Snaps (comes in many styles), Velcro, bound buttonholes made from Ultrasuede™

What do I need to do if I have stored my machine for a long period of time and want to take it out and sew with it?

If you prepared your machine properly for storage by oiling it well to keep rust from attacking it, there are a couple of things you will want to do before using it on your project. First, remove the bobbin, race, and ring. Wipe all the parts with a dry cloth. Replace the bobbin parts and bobbin. Then sew, on a scrap of fabric first. When you think you machine should be oiled, oil the bobbin area. Run your machine with outout thread a minute, and wipe out excess oil. That should keep the oil from soiling the thread and fabric you are sewing.

I am trying to hem sheer curtains and the fabric is puckering. Can I blind hem sheer curtains?

  1. Try loosening the tension.
    2. Fold the hem twice for more support.
    3. Try using a smaller needle. Suggestion: size 9
    4. Use a finer thread such as cotton embroidery thread for an almost invisible hem.
