I need these!!! HEM CLIPS. Measure and hold hemming projects without pins! Smooth, stainless steel clips slide onto fabric and hold hem in place while you sew or baste. Built-in measure assures straight, accurate hemlines every time, without tedious pinning (or pricked fingers!). Ideal for skirts, dresses, drapes. NEED THESE!
A hand-picked (aka hand-sewn) zipper is sturdy and easy to master. It doesn't distort or pucker, is great for heavily embellished or delicate fabrics, and - best of all - calls attention to your handiwork.
It's been a while since we've had a 'Sewing 201' post! I've been sewing with my rolled hem foot quite a bit lately, so I snapped a few photos.

The rolled hem foot sews just that, a narrow rolled hem that's pretty on scarves, blouses, dresses, or even curtains.
