    Default Kaye Wood needle match method

    I was watching a Kaye Wood video this morning and she kept referring to her "needle match method" for a perfect 1/4 in seam. I have been all over the net and youtube looking for a tutorial for the method, but alas I'm empty handed and bleary eyed. Does anyone here know about the "needle match method" or can someone point me in the right direction to find it.

    All I could find was an article by Threads Magazine on the importance of right needle & thread.

    I once had a teacher remind us that the thickness of your needle and thread could create a small difference in the perfect 1/4" seam. I sew pretty precisely, and I do adjust my machine as needed.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    There's no video link in your comment. But I tried searching and came up empty handed for 'needle match method' too.
