    I brought a pdf pattern from Pam Bono and the Angler 2. I am having trouble with my machine eating the corner. What do you do to avoid this. I really don't want to buy a nother plate for the machine.
    Thank you for your help.

    I would e-mail Pam, she is very good about answering questions about her products.

    I fold a piece of fabric. place under presser foot to start sewing the seam, sew off "starter" fabric just like chain piecing. I use a pointed wooden skewer to guide at end of seam. There may be a technical term for the starter fabric, but I don't know what it is.

    I emailed Pam Bono and received the best tip. Put a tiny piece of tape over the hole in the plate and now my machine can't eat the corners. I wanted to pass this tip on to others.

    What do you mean put a piece of tape over the hole in the plate? I'm curious now. I have eaten a few corners in my life although I'm starting to get in to the habit of starters and enders for an eventual quilt or something. I'm getting a lot of half square triangles made lol.

    Just put a very small piece of tape over the hole that you needle go into. It works great.

    What I do is sew a "leader" fabric before I sew on my piece, seems to avoid the machine eating pieces.
