Good Morning, Quilters!
We have a busy week here at The Inbox Jaunt–including a BIG Announcement–so stay tuned…
Today–a machine quilting Quick Tip…one that seem sooooo obvious once you see it…
Some machine feet are “open”-like my favorite for machine quilting, BERNINA’s #24 Free Motion Embroidery Foot.
Other feet have a slit in the front or the side for your to slide the thread after threading the needle.
But what do you do when you have a foot that is completely closed–an enclosed ring–like BERNINA’s #72 Adjustable Ruler Foot?
Most of us fuss around and insert the thread through the foot.
There is a faster and easier way…
Unlatch the foot from the machine and lift it up–effectively threading the needle through the foot–then pull the thread through and re-attach the foot.
Fast and easy!
Every time you use this trick I want you to think of me! LOL! (Every time I use it, I think of my friend, Jeanne from BERNINA, who taught it to me!)
What about YOU?
Do YOU have any machine quilting quick tips YOU’d like to share!?
We’d LOVE to hear!
May your days be filled with happy stitching!
