I love to use Pinterest as my virtual bulletin board. As you might guess many of my pins are sewing related. Click here to see what fun stuff I've found and pinned to different sewing boards.

Technicos PerPINdicular: New Ways With Pins:

Hey, perPINdicular is the way to go AND way to sew!
When it comes to the big stuff, I expect mystery. But it's the little things I don't know, that I find most amazing.

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.
