|Hey, perPINdicular is the way to go AND way to sew!|
All my sewing life, I'd sewn with my pins parallel to the seam line. Am I the only sewist to whom it never occurred to change the placement so that the pins went in perpendicular (why isn't that spelled perPINdicular!) to my stitching line?
What a difference a pin direction makes! Sure, sometimes it still works better the other way.
Now quit laughing at me, OK? I knew you already knew all about this!
It's learning this little stuff, as well as the big, that keeps me enchanted by sewing.
