    My Juki has a compensating foot that has a stationary part that sits on the machine bed and fabric slides along that edge, can't make a large seam. I bought a 1/4" foot w/ a blade and fabric slides against it for perfect 1/4" seam for my vintage machine. I just bought one for my Babylock, will try it in a few evenings and see if it is what I want. I can just line fabric up with the 1/4" line and make a perfect seam, I am lazy and like things the easy way.

    I've used a large rubber band in the past, on my little Brother that had a free arm. Worked great.

    The command strips are so great for so many things. I have the hook kind on the side of each of my machines to hang my scissors on. Now I always have my favorite pair by my machine.
    Happy Quilting

    You might also check with your sewing machine dealer for a 1/4 foot. I have a Bernina and they have a 1/4 foot with a slide on the outside so you will always have perfect 1/4" seams.
    Include lots of color in your life.

    Goo-Gone doesn't damage acrylic, plastic or stainless. Easy peasy!

    Yes, Goo-Gone does damage plastic! I ruined my 6x24 inch ruler by using it to remove some glo tape residue. It actually caused the ruler surface to disintegrate.
