    Hi girls. I've not missed an episode yet and I'm learning a lot. You're both fun to hang out with as well. Ahaha lots of laughs and inside sewers jokes. Keep up the great work! Sincerely yours Susan.

    Holding thread and using starter piece of fabric may help alleviate "bird nest" on bottom side of fabric.

    Hello

    I still use an old treadle. To help keep the rest of the shirt out of the way, I use a toilet paper roll. I cover them with anything and slit the roll lengthwise. Then roll shirt and put it on the roll where the slit is. I love you girls. Y'all even help and answer things I wanted to know and things I didn't know I wanted to know. Thanks do muvh girls.
