    That is an excellent tip, for I have been doing that for years. It is amazing that so many have never heard of matching the points and sewing them at each point, making sure they all match before sewing the final seam. I also will turn my fabric upside right or upside down where ever the seam needs to be eased together and my points don't change. I myself feel that the end product is worth this little extra step. One does not hurry.

    Fortunately I rarely need to fix seam match ups. Not since I read on the net to double pin the join. Provided I have the seam aligned correctly they never move. But this is a good tip for those who do have a problem. I believe there aren't right or wrong ways just different ways.

    I've never done really large quilts but I often do that - just sew over the matching points and then go back to join the entire piece. You are right - it makes a huge difference!

    This tip sounds like a keeper to me and I too have problems matching up the points etc. even though I pin pin pin I sometimes get those wonky tips so thanks for this tip and it is one I will remember.

    Hmmm, this IS one of those bonk-on-the-head moments. Although I've very happy with glued seams, I may give this one a try.

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    Thanks

    I found that your machine can pull off no matter how carefully pinned seams. I use a Pfaff with IDT, too.

    I found this out making sweatshirts - the underarm seam carefully pinned- and off when sewn. It was the bulk of the seam and the machine moving the seams.

    to jingle that said hard to remember the tips. I copy and paste the tips I want to remember into a word file called hints and tips and keep adding them to the file then when want to remember one I just go look at my file. works great. hope this helps
