This is my.... trade secret

Hmmm... I'm not very good at keeping trade secrets. I'm in the business of SHARING THEM!! For starters, I'm putting them all up on THIS BLOG this month!!!


I've definitely turned into GADGET GIRL in the last year or two. The things that I can't live without I tend to want to share.... and so grows the range of supplies we stock.


Other trade secrets -
  • GOOD QUALITY MATERIALS - from the inside out. Cheap fabrics and cheap interfacing are just not worth the trouble.
  • The right interfacing for the job makes the world of difference.
  • "Press as you go" when you're sewing, and use an iron with a good shot of steam.

Amelia came up with this weeks theme for Angela's "This Is..." meme.

I love sewing gadgets!
I really need to learn about interfacing and how to use it properly.

I like your press as you go secret. You can't beat a lovely steam iron ( ... except if you are perhaps sewing, ahem, a velvet garment)

I so totaly agree with what you say girl. The only thing I still don't use is the bias tape maker. Still making them the old fashion way. You have a nice day.

I agree with the bias tape maker 100%! I only recently purchased one and don't know how I ever lived without it.

yep, I agree with everything you've written here. :o)

I know my Nana had a bias tape maker similar to that but when I asked in a sewing shop they didn't seem to know what I meant. I KNOW how to cut the endless strips. LOL

I too was taught to press, press, press and haste does make a mess quite often. I know...
