Thanks so much for the nice complements! You ladies are very kind. The twin-needle pintucks are quite simple to do, actually, and not even very time consuming. http://www.schmetzneedles.com/twin.htm has a picture of the needle (two needles that fit into a single shaft; the only requirement of your sewing machine is that it has the ability to zig-zag and have a zig-zag throat plate). You only need to draw out the first tuck with a water soluable marker and then use the edge of your presser foot or a groove in a pintuck foot to guide the rest. I drew out a 45* angle to mark the end of my tucks; you can see how the fabric pulled it into a steeper angle than that. I threaded the loosed ends to the wrong side of the fabric and tied them off with a simple knot. After I had tucked the fabric I laid out my pattern fronts and cut out the pieces. If you haven't tried making pintucks this way before, consider giving it a try. It's fun and looks harder than it really is. ;0) Rose-Marie To: don_gal_3@msn.com
