1. RED LIGHT, GREEN LIGHT Whenever you have to stop sewing a project, leave it on the machine at the beginning of the next step. When you come back to resume the project, you won't have to wonder where you left off.

2. BLUE GLUE
Utilize Elmer's School Gel Glue for basting. The glue creates less bunching than pins, and it completely washes out.

3. TWO FOR YOU
Keep two pincushions close when sewing, one containing flat-head pins and the other glass-head pins. Place one by the iron and one by the sewing machine, and then swap as needed.

4. INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH Use an industrial tape measure for hemming large projects. It's easy to lock and bend when altering draperies, which is simpler than marking every 60 inches.

5. SAVED SELVAGE
When working on a project that calls for narrow twilltape, use a thin fabric selvage strip. It's convenient and almost always available.
