    Help is on the way for those Sewing Minky!!

    I was just looking around for some good sales today & found this pdf for a minkee strip quilt. www.pacificfabrics.com . It has some good tips & helps to keep it from stretching so badly. Hope this helps someone. The page also has a pdf you can print off about all the different Schmetz Sewing Machine Needles. www.schmetzneedles.com/learning/pdf/ABC-brochure.pdf. Good info here, I think. Enjoy your Post Christmas high. Sorry I was having a problem getting the actual link to the pdf. Just click on "free projects".

    Thanks. I was having such a problem that I post a new thread here on the board & got some help but the way I finally solved my problem was to just use my FW. She sewed the minky with no problem. Now I'll only use her or one of my other oldies to sew that & fleece

    Thanks for this link. Pacific Fabrics was my "go to" store when we lived near Seattle. Pleasant staff and lots of good classes.
