One tip I would like to pass on to new quilters, always have a few bandaides in your sewing basket! They will come in handy!! Also the seam ripper is your new friend!! Keep him close by! Remember to have fun!
Both have been my best friend this last week...good advice!
I agree, but I would add that you find a ripper that is comfy in your hand. Some of the ones that are tiny that come with the sewing/quilting machines can be to small for your hand or just not comfortable and you won't be able to rip out properly. I have one that is from Fons and Porter that I love. You just have to find fits for you. Have fun!
