    Re: Giveaway Week 30 Aug 8th -14th

    congrats winner!

    I think the most common error in sewing/quilting is the quarter inch seam.

      I don't know what kind of machine you have, but my Janome 6600 can save my changes and I don't have to reset it everytime I turn my machine off and on. You might check your manual (probably under programming) to see it you can do that.

        What do you think is the most common mistake made while sewing?

        Not reading the instructions thoroughly, i.e., more than once before beginning a new project and not making a test block.

          Sewing over an unintentional fold on the underside. I hate when I do that. No solution except to pick it out.

            The most common mistake for me is making sure that my bottom piece of material remains even with the top so that I have a full 1/4 in stitch line down the full length. Also getting in too big of a hurry when cutting.

            Congratulations to last weeks winner. Nice bonus!!

              In my humble opinion-lol-the most common mistake is not having a consistent 1/4" seam.

              Procrastinate. It frees up time to quilt!

                Congrats Nana2mandj!
                I think the most common mistake is to automatically point out all of our mistakes!

                  Congrats Nana2. I think the most common mistake is not checking the 1/4 seam allowance and rechecking it.

                    Congrats!! to Nana2mandj. What did you get with your 2000 points?

                    Sewing when your tired can cause a lot of problems for me. I'm sure it does for others

                      Not reading cutting instructions thoroughly before cutting. measure twice, cut once.
                      Congratulations to the winner!

                        I feel the same as some of the others. Always READ the directions for the entire pattern before starting to cut.

                          I think the accurate 1/4" seam is the biggest problem. Whether too deep a seam, or out of alignment top and bottom piece, it's all about the seam if you want the pattern to work.

                            My most common mistake/frustration is running out of bobbin, and the machine unthreading itself. My machine is a little older and kinda charming because of it. We have and understanding,my machine and I. Now that I know all its quirks we get along great, just like old pals.

                              I think cutting the backing too short!!
