Hi

Like the others here I both hand and machine sew depending on the size and complexity of the piece I am working on. I trim all the pile from the seam allowance then I like to pin and also tack pieces together before sewing. If i'm machine sewing I use a 'walking foot' attachment which is designed to help feed the material through and stop it slipping. This was a tip I got years ago when I went on a Janome sewing course - I think it does make a difference not sure if others use/would agree?
