    That is great, thank you for taking the time to collate all the tips that are submitted. Will save is loads of time, but I fear will take up loads of your time, so thank you

    Embroidery designs:
    I make a print out of all my designs and store them in the clear plastic sleeves. They go in their own section according to the designer or web site I download them from. When I need a design I flip through my binders then it makes it easier to find on the computer because the computer it set up the same as the binder according to designer, etc.

    I just finished a project that used fusible interfacing. It said to cut the fabric 9x12 and to cut the interfacing the same, then fuse. I cut the interfacing to 87/8x 117/8 (undersized by 1/8") I will be doing this all the time now. Less chance of the fusible getting on the iron and it will still be caught in the 1/4" seam.

    Looking for a new sewing machine? I found this great checklist of things you might want to consider when shopping. I found this on a website called sewmamasew.com

    Here's the checklist.

    What unique features does this machine have that sets it apart from others?

    How many stitches does it have?

    Which accessories come with the machine?

    What are my options for future accessories (i.e. additional feet, etc.), and what is
    the associated approximate cost?

    What type of warranty comes with the machine?

    Who completes the repairs, and how long does that typically take? (Do you have
    to ship the machine to the manufacturer or does the shop do repairs?)

    Is the machine supposed be professionally "tuned up" and cleaned? How much
    does that cost?

    Are lessons/classes included in the cost of the machine?

    Is the harp size adequate for my needs? Do the feed dogs drop for quilting?

    How does it feel to sew? Quiet? Smooth? Intuitive features? Loud? Confusing?

    Will this machine fit my sewing space well? (If you’re a roving sewist does it
    have a case?)

    Can I see myself sewing happily on this machine in 20 years?

    Are there any handouts about the machine I can take to read at home?

    Happy Quilting!
    Where do I add a tip? I have a few to add.
    I hope there are sewing machines in Heaven
