Have I mentioned how much I love my quilty friends?

So, you were absolutely right.  Thank you for the BLOGGER tips.  Much better now. 

Here's another question for those of you in the know...when sewing/working with laminated fabric, do you need to use a special needle?

I wouldn't use a 14 or 16 because of the size of the hole, but others should work fine. Also be sure to use a teflon roller foot as it makes the going much easier.

Bigger stitches too!!

Hi! Before I started my lamenated fabric project, I researched as much as I could ... poke as few holes as possible in the material. I used binder clips instead of straight pins and I used my 80/12 needle, though I suppose I could have used my 70/10 needle. I did use my walking foot too to lessen the possibility of slippage during sewing.

For what its worth ;)

Glad things are working now - I don't know a thing about laminates, sorry! But I do know you should use a teflon foot.
