NATIONAL SEWING MONTH - DAY 10...

SEWING TIP OF THE DAY
(Maybe you've heard this, but just in case you haven't) 
CURE FOR RUNAWAY FOOT PEDALS

Use shelf or drawer liners to create a no-slip surface for your sewing machine’s pedal. Cut in a square shape, slightly larger than the machine foot pedal, and this textured foam will help keep the pedal in place as you stitch.

    Hi, thanks for your sewing tip inspiration. Thought you might like to know that in Canada, the Lieutenant-Governor of the province of Ontario sews too: http://toronto.ctvnews.ca/lt-gov-elizabeth-dowdeswell-has-a-secret-hobby-1.3555203
    With appreciation for your inspiring and empowering sewing/posts, Lynda from Toronto (Ontario, Canada)
    ps: Thanks for sharing the no slip foot pedal tip - it is a good tip I intend to implement.

    1. How absolutely interesting! Thank you so much for including this information about Lt. Governor Elizabeth Dowdeswell's secret hobby. This has actually ignited my sewing motivation since it's been on a bit of a vacation lately. I think that I will be sharing her inspiring secret on my blog here real soon!
