    Re: Bacon???

    Well, it wouldn't be a problem for me 'cause I would have sampled it all gone by now....... But could you crumble it and sprinkle on top of your broccoli salads, mixing it in before serving?

    Re: Binding question

    It makes pretty wave that catches the folded edge well. It's really easy to miss the edge with a straight stitch. You can adjust the serpentine to a variety of sizes/lengths of curves/waves

    For machine binding I also sew on back and flip to front, but I use the serpentine stitch to sew binding down not straight stitch

    I did something like this for my DDs at college. Only I used my emb. machine to emb. things they were interested in, simple patchwork. That was nearly 20 years ago and they still use them

    I hand sew it with what ever needles I happen to find in my sewing box. Usually have DH thread several ahead of time so I can switch them out as I go.

    Re: coffee

    Black coffee should come out better than coffee with cream in it. The fats in the cream will set the stain more( at least that's what a dry cleaner friend told me}
