How Many Specialty Stitches Does Your Machine Offer?

Mini-Stitch Sampler

Quilters have fabulous sewing machines that offer more stitches than we’ll ever really use. Let’s face it: most quilters use the straight stitch, zig-zag, feather stitch, buttonhole stitch, and maybe one or two others. But the remaining stitches are lonely, waiting to be remembered and at least acknowledged.

So do it. You never know what promise specialty stitches hold for use in your quilts. I use many stitches most quilters think of only as clothing stitches. I often use the three-step zig-zag stitch to sew on my bindings by machine. It’s a great stitch for baby quilts, as that binding is super secure.

    Thanks for your posting on the vacation industry. I would also like to include that if your senior thinking of traveling, it is absolutely crucial that you buy travel insurance for senior citizens. When traveling, seniors are at high risk being in need of a professional medical emergency. Getting the right insurance policies package in your age group can protect your health and give you peace of mind.
