      Tips From Our Readers....

      Hi Kaye,
      I have a computerized machine that has a stylus to program the stitch you want. I was forever dropping it, picking it off the floor or hunting for it. I took a yard plus of 1/8" ribbon, threaded it through the top of the stylus and tied the ribbon around the lower part of the machine arm. I now know where it is, it doesn't go far when I drop it and that makes it a great stress reliever. The ribbon doesn't interfere with the operation of the machine since it is loose enough to point out the stitch I need and the stylus can sit in its assigned hole on the machine.....Joanne

      Funny Stories From Our Readers....

      I was cleaning out my sewing room and came across a box I had labeled "Scraps too Small to Use." I had to laugh at the label and immediately changed it to "Small Scraps." I didn't want anyone to think I was losing my mind! .....Katie

      Ask Kaye....

      A Reader Asks: I want to use a bamboo bat in the quilt I'm currently making. Would it be best to pre-shrink the bat, since it says on the label that it shrinks 2-3%. If some of the fabrics in the quilt have not been pre-shrunk, will there be a problem? All fabrics are cotton.

      Kaye answers: I have not used any bamboo bats yet. I would suggest that you contact the manufacturer for suggestions.
      I do not pre-wash my fabrics any more. Cottons used to shrink or the colors would run. That doesn't seem to happen any more. The only fabrics I would pre-test by wetting a small piece are the very darks. If the color bleeds, I would pre-wash the whole piece of fabric.
      Muslin might still shrink a little, so I would pre-wash any muslins.

      Do you have a question for our resident expert? Ask away and we'll feature it in upcoming newsletters! Also, Kaye will personally answer your questions.
