    I didn't realize that I had pressed and starched all my seams in the wrong direction. I could have started at the bottom and worked my way to the top, but that would have made too much sense. Stubborn German that I am, I decided to make it work with less handling and assure myself that the seams on bottom did not flip. So, I put a bridge over the gap. The gap is where your table meets your machine. That is an automatic seam flipper. So, here is my solution. Put a piece of tape over the gap. The blue painters tape was handy, but I'm sure anything would work. The End. :lol:

    Never thought of that. It is a problem I have frequently. On my table I just have to lower the machine just a little so table is just slightly higher than machine and I don't get flipped seams.
