Can anybody suggest a way to remove " steam a seam" that has been ironed onto the right side of fabric instead of the wrong. What a wally!
Googled and the only suggestion is rubbing alcohol. I am sure this isn't the first time it has been done!
Thanks for your help

The leaves were traced from ones I collected
I have had my pe770 for about a year now and have successfully purchased and downloaded many .pes type embroidery designs. Yesterday I tried to purchase one only to find thatmy machine would not recognize the .pes. When I sent a query to the software provider, he informed me that there are NINE .pes versions and that I needed to know which one I had. He further explained that I needed to update my machine to accept the newest version. I went through a Brother software upgrade, but I still couldn't
I am looking for an older metal singer sewing machine, or other brands, to do heavy sewing. I am wanting to do purses with upholstery fabric or outdoor fabrics with stabilizer as a backing and the newer sewing machines just do not work. I have a featherweight and it just sometimes just not strong enough. Any suggestions??? I really do not want to spend an arm and a leg for one.
I made this for the latest mystery train here on the board. It is Christmas/Winter fabrics and is a large lap-size. Top and back are quilter's cotton and the batting is fleece. It will be a gift for my Mother-in-Law for her birthday in November.
I purchased an older non-computerized Tin Lizzie at an Estate Sale with from it is beautiful and I am in love! Especially being a beginner. However my big down fall is it didn't come with a manual. I have searched high & low for one with no success. My last straw is to call Tin Lizzie BUT being a newbie I am scared to death to talk to them as to can I answer the questions that they need to know. Al I can find on the machine is Model# Cat#, I also know it's not computerized & has a phone
My Husband was in the military and he was deployed overseas in 2006. For his return from deployment I wanted to make him something crafty. I wanted it to be something I had not done before and something that would challenge me.
My grandmother and great grandmother were both quilters. If a new baby was coming or born they got a quilt... Sweet 16 get a quilt, get married get another quilt. I got my 1st quilt from my great grandmother but dragged it around to its demise probably

I did 9 rows of 7 blocks, plus the extra half-block border that completes the points. Haven't decided on a quilting pattern yet, but I'm tossing around an idea. Thanks for looking!
