I use internet explorer and have no problem opening the videos. I have 3 machines and have found that they do sew different. I use the same machine for a project. That insures accuracy.

that explains why that happens when all of us get together and sew and things don't match up!  thanks

Thanks Jodie,  I know from experiance that you can have a difficult time getting perfect seam allowances

especially, on long strips of fabric.  All your suggestions are very good.  I would suggest getting a quarter

inch foot for your machine, it works extremely well.  I have had perfect sound on every video!

Thanks for the tip. I have used different machines on a project, but not anymore.

Thanks for the info. I had to learn that whatever ruler I use it has to be the same one for the entire quilt project. If the seams are not sewn correctly the quilt will not lay flat while you are quilting it.

I just bought a 1/4 presser foot for my machine today.  It works great.  I bought a universal one at Joann's and it never worked right.  This one is a dream.  Hopefully no more frustration.

I use  a note card with lines 1/4  inch and I just run it along the seam, fast check if its off I can fix it right now.

I am new and this is my first video.  It is very clear and helpful and I just bought a 1/4 inch foot for my Bernina.

Thanks.

How about a video on how to square up your quilt block? Thanks!

I have had a problem in past, but on my sewing if I move the needle one click to the right, I have a perfect quarter.  I also put a sticky note on my machine to remind me to move my needle over before I start working on my quilt.

Thanks for the lessons.

Sound went out every 10 words.  Larger screen would be easier for classes to see.  Good advice re seams; can't be said enough, especially to beginners.  --A sewing/quilting teacher
