Stitch Witchery REMOVAL by gouda
Help! I used Stitch Witchery to add a border on a skirt, which I have subsequently removed from the skirt. The inside hem now has leftover Stitch Witchery all over it, which has generated giant snags in my brand new pantyhose! How on earth do I remove this stuff??? Thanks! gouda

When I went around Xmas to fabric store, they told me that those were for sergers and that I couldn't use...

Anyone have a source for men's thimbles? by BEI Design
I've googled, but everything I have found so far has been in women's sizes S-M-L or 0 up to 7. I have large hands and I wear a 7, it would be too small for my new SIL, who wants a large man's thimble, I'd like to find him both a metal and a leather one. Anyone??? TIA, --

Singer Touch-Tronic 2010 by [email protected]
Found it this afternoon at a thrift shop, under $30.00. It's in need of a thorough cleaning, but makes a beautiful stitch, sounds good, and it's a touch-panel machine!! 29+ built-in stitches, and so easy to use. I think this one might be the machine I give to GDD. Except it has an extra-long,...
