Lynn mentioned two favorite tools. One is the Squeeze Snip a Stitch Scissor. “The little hook slides under machine embroidery jump stitches with ease and you can clip close to the fabric. It’s also great for removing stitches in serging and sewing.”Her second favorite is the Extra-Long Tweezers. (53430) “They’re great for maneuvering those threads around a serger. The tips are long & narrow and squeeze together easily saving me many moments of frustration.”Diane really loves the Steady Betty Pressing Surface. (40896) “When pressing triangles or other bias edges in your quilts, the Steady Betty keeps the fabric from stretching. It grabs hold during pressing. This results in are a more true size piece, easier to square up.“It’s also a great surface to use when you’re hooping fabric for embroidery. It holds the bottom of the hoop so you aren’t chasing it across your table. It’s also nice to use for pressing your finished embroidery design instead of a towel.”
