New here and thanks in advance for info. Hate to ask old questions again, but here goes!
While experimenting with our 201 hand crank, it quickly became apparent that cranking can indeed get tiring. But so be it. Now when I am joining top pieces, what is an accepted number of stitches per inch? All cotton material and thread, with a 1/4 inch seam allowance is planned. Just looking, it seems to be a good compromise at 10 stitches per inch. This allows me significant progress, and provided I maintain proper tension, a good snug stitch too. 7 per inch seems weak, and 14 seems to be overkill. Yes these are the questions of a man used to working in fractions of a thousandth of an inch precision, and the decision may be "just up to me" . Thoughts please? Don
