I've been watching some of the tutorials on youtube and I would like to give this more of a try..I can do SITD but I want to go beyond that. The woman who has all the tutorials on youtube suggested to get a pair of white gloves. I went onto her site, and there is a package deal where you get gloves, this sliding board and some bobbin genies which clean bobbin and help create more even stitching on back. Just curious, but are these "necessities?" The whole package is around $50.
