Lesson Learned: Seam Guides

Posted Wed, Feb 27 2013 12:35 PM by quiltcrone

My machine doesn't have a 1/4" seam marking. I tried using masking tape. It worked fine, but left a ruckka residue mess on my machine when I removed it. So I purchased a package of those repositionable vinyl-like seam guide strips. They worked as advertised: they left no residue on my machine, and they are indeed repositionable. So much so that the fabric riding along side it repositioned it after the first few passes. <sigh> I resorted to painter's tape. Stays put until you move it, no residue left behind, and bonus! it's cheap.

You can add several pieces to the painters tape to build it up and make it thicker. That also helps a bit .

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll give it a try. :-)
