1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing Feet...Huskystar E20 on: October 15, 2008 07:36:20 AM
These are all my guesses - its hard to tell from a picture on some of them, but the best way to find out is to try and play with them  Grin

1.   Is a darning foot which can be used for quilting of free hand embroidery if you can lower the feed dogs on your machine.
2.   I believe this is a rolled hem foot; its hard to tell by the picture. This is really handy with sheer material.
3.   This one is definitely for zippers, very handy!
4.   Zig zag I believe, also if you use a twin needle this is the foot you will want to use.
5.   Im really not sure about that one- maybe blind hem?
6.   This one is your everyday foot
7.   Buttonhole foot. You put the button in the space and then the machine can make the right size button hole.

Good luck with all the sewing! I would google your machine and try and find an old manual.

Oh my gosh! I love my mending snail! He is just so precious. I cant wait to see your stitching in person, it looks so textural. Thank you so much, it looks great and absolutely adore it!

Oh and don't worry about the pin head - I can add it when it gets back to me. I do stuff like that all the time  Grin

Here are some pictures of what I added to AmyRacinRose's pillow front. She has a vintage Christmas theme going so I used the holiday cuties pattern from work basket. I hope she likes it! I used backstitch, chain stitch, and french knots.



5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to stop my thread fraying? on: September 10, 2008 06:57:38 PM
I use thread heaven with all my embroidery and I love it. But, I would make sure you aren't using too long of a piece of thread to begin with. You should use a section of thread no longer than the distance from your finger to your shoulder. If it is too long the thread will dull and break, and ruin all your pretty stitches! Also is the kit an older kit? Thread does deteriorate over time so if the kit is older that may be the culprit. But luckily thread is cheap so you could replace the thread if that is the problem. I hope that helps! Good luck stitching!

Oh cupcakeguru I love the dress form! The colors are super cute! I have that pattern set from sublime but I was hesitant to use it for my stitching because I figured the other stitchers might want to use it. Thanks a lot!

All the other stitching on the tour is great as well! It is so inspiring to see so many different styles of stitching and the variety of color pallets. I love it all!

Ooh I made it in! I am so excited to be in this round, previous tours have given me so much inspiration for my own stitching. I can't wait to see others stitching up close and personal  Grin

I do have a question for previous tea towel tour stitchers- do you like when someone asks you to work within a theme? Does it help you narrow down designs or does it make you feel like you can't be as creative? I am just trying to decide if I should request a theme or not. Thanks so much for any input! I can't wait to get those towels!
