Sue-Hi Jane thank you very much for answering my question. I will definitely go with the natural waddings, I'm not a fan of man made fabrics. Does the cotton come in different thicknesses and if so I guess it will be personal preference? Is a thicker wadding harder to quilt on the machine when it comes to that stage? Your video was really helpful and informative thank you again
Loopy's Place · The cotton is a thin wadding Sue, there will only be mm differences between the different ones. Yes, the thicker the wadding the problematic the quilting can be, A walking foot is essential
Reply- I just love the variety of Ask Loopy for the variety of questions that come in. I've always promised, if I don't know the answer, I'll find someone that does, so Julie for your question-how to sharpen pinking shears? I did a bit of research and came up with a simple answer. I'll put a couple of links in the comments for you to check out too.
Simply, get some aluminium foil, folded double, the length of your blade, make several cuts along the foil and voila! There is a link to a video
The other option is to get a sheet of fine sandpaper, you just want it the length of the blade, and do the same thing. Useful link here
If that fails, ask at your local sewing shop and see if they know anyone that sharpens scissors. :)
Jackie has tried the foil method and it works, so a great tip to remember.
