    Thanks, I'm e-mailing this to myself and then I can send it on to a friend. The only e-mail address I remember is my own, as I have had to give it out to others. I have everyone else in my address book. Don't even know my own cell phone munber as I don't call it, I keep it listed in my cell phone so I can give it out as needed.

    My father has just had a chairlift installed in his home. I would like to make him some type of bag that will go over the handle, so he could use it for bringing things up and down the stairs. Do any of you have any tips about that?

    This is a great forum but how do I see only the new additions? Is there anyway to highlight the new additions?

    Hi everyone, I too had trouble finding the TIPS page, but I'm glad I did. I want to know how to clean off my rotary cutting mat that has a lot of little pieces of batting left on it.

That's good, even great, but I still think a navigation tips page would help a lot of us who are struggling. Can you set that up also? I never did figure out how to post pictures in the old system... people would send me help but I couldn't find the words they were telling me to click on (I have a Mac). Maybe I'm the only one who needs hand-holding help......

    I'm editing this because I just noticed at the bottom of the page these terms....
    tag cloud, BB code, pingbacks, refbacks.... I haven't a clue.
    I'm with you - I haven't a clue what those terms are in your last line, or how to use them. Maybe somebody will enlighten some of us on those items.

    Does anyone have any tips on making continuous bias binding? I know I did it years ago, but I am having difficulty, even with a book in front of me? I found a tutorial that requires yet another special ruler, which I have plenty of! Also to whoever gave the tip on using the waffle type of shelf lining to put under your presser foot, THANK YOU. Works great, and I have had tried a number of things. This one really works.

    Just finished my first two rag quilts. I didn't like the fuzzies that remained. I took a regular cardboard emery board and using the rough side. To clean off these fuzzies. Best to place quilt on a flat surface ( coffee table footstool etc). It worked great. Be sure and use the small end too, One could probably use the sweater shavers, but I never seem to have the right batteries. This is simple and it works as it rolls up the fuzzies and then you can pick them up.

    Another quick tip on a scrappy quilt. Cut four 4" squares two plain and two print. Cut a twenty inch piece of newspaper-- iron to set ink. Sew you four flocks together, place in the center of the newspaper on point (meaning the points of your four patch to the flat side of the paper. tear strips or cut and starting at one side of the four block stitch the strip to one side (sort of like a log cabin). You will work counter-clockwise around the block enclosing the former end seam. As you fill in your strips will get longer and as you get near the edge of the newspaper they will get shorter. If you want to get fancy, buy enough print fabric for the back, a ruffle and make two of the print blocks to match. I stitched in the ditch, you could also tie this quilt and make it a comforter. Tear off paper before quilting.

    You can also use the pinking blades that fit your rotary cutter.

    Would you send me a way to get to the tips page? I'm new at this and am lost. I really like the idea of a tips page, if I could only find it. Remember, I'm new so I don't understand any of the letters, like PM. Thank you so much. Jeanne

    I need some tips on "hand stitching" I'm a beginner sewer and started making decorative pillows. What is the trick with hand stitching to making an "invisible line" after you stuff your pillows?
