NSC LIVE! November 2016

During the November NSC LIVE, Nicki LaFoille taught how to make several pattern alterations, including changes to the shoulder, waist, and leg areas of garments. Nicki also discussed how to use an old garment two different ways by taking it apart. Other topics included embroidery, stabilizers, and how to pair the right stabilizer with the right fabric.

    Have you any tips for creating curtains accurately when they are too big for your table or bed and don't have enough floor space to lay the curtain out.

    For Shirley the lady that has trouble threading a needle, I also have the same problem and picked up some clip on magnifiers that attach to my glasses....most stores that handle crochet, embroidery, needlepoint type stock often have these clip ons and they are wonderful. I use mine ALL the time.
