Bonnie Hunter blogged about this tip and I tried it and it works the best of all I've tried. Use the Command Strips as the sewing guide. No sticky on the machine and easy to take off. I have the 1/4 food with metal side guide but I like this much better. I can make the guide as long as I need, not just length of the foot. But I found an extra plus to this. If you can see the thread behind my needle the strip holds the thread out of my way after I cut it. I tend to get the thread in my way when I'm starting a new seam.
