    ALEX ANDERSON TAUGHT ME TO PIN, PIN, PIN. AS YOU GET TO A PIN YOU REMOVE IT, HAVE TO GO SLOW SOMETIMES, BUT HAVEN'T HAD ANY TROUBLE. PLUS YOUR INTERSECTION TURN OUT PRETTY PERFECT.

    HAVE A GOOD EVENING,

    When I have a lot of seams that go together like when I'm sewing rows together, I put a dot of Elmer's school glue on the seam allowance, set it with an iron, and that holds it in place. It doesn't take much time, faster then pinning for me, and saves so much frustration.

    I forgot to say my latest greatest find: I cut the needle hole bigger in my Supreme Slider so I could regular sew and found the seams stay put. The edge of the throat plate does not flip the seams up anymore. :D
