    Please help me!

    Hi everyone,
    I have holes in my customers quilt. I had to frog some of my piano keys and now I can't seem to get the holes that the needle left out of the fabric. This customer doesn't wash her quilts and she wants to show this one. I have tried getting it wet and rubbing my fingernail over the fabric and then letting it dry hoping that the fabric would shrink some and close the holes and it did with some of them but not the majority. Any ideas? Please?
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Try a straight pin, and nudge the threads back to their home. I don't have fingernails that will stand up as tools, so this is the same idea, but the pin has more push, pull where needed. Linda

    Thank you ladies. I tried the straight pin and the steam and the steam did the trick. Thank you so much. It's so good to have a resource like all of you to help in time of need.

    Yep...there's no disaster that can't be fixed or worked around when presented to the QB members. Imagine how many years of experience you can draw upon. Glad your problem was sorted....you must have been worried sick - I know I would be.

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.
