I hafta thank someone
...for suggesting binding clips.
I'm sewing on a binding this weekend and even when I was working in close quarters in a moving car I was not getting stuck. They hold the binding down beautifully and securely. Even the miters are held in perfect alignment. And the thread doesn't get stuck on them as I sew my way around.
I am really grateful for the suggestion. Thanks so much!
PS Couldn't find them at LQS or Joanne's. Had to get them at the drugstore in the hair styling section but WTH, I gottem and they're great. ;>
