    I watched the 1/4 inch seam video.
    I didn't know you pressed from the back? I have always pressed from the front after I set the seams. She also said, when her sample seam was too large she was going to move her tape away from the needle. Wouldn't that make it more off? Is my head fuzzy today??????????

    If you look at the video on pressing on the same site, you will see that she says never press from the back.

    I watched the video on 1/4 seams and i agree with linhawk. It seems backwards to me to. If i am already making my seam to wide why move it farther away?Wouldnt that make the seam even wider then 2.5?
