It's going to be only 99 here today.   It isn't really hot until we get to triple digits, right?   ;)

Laurie, she sounds like a teacher I would have loved to have, too. 

My fingers are crossed that you DH gets good results.

Linda, so, not avocado shag, right?  (That's what was in my house when I bought it.  Over oak floors.   ::)  I wonder if that is still made.  If so, why.)

Hello HVCapetillo and welcome to Stitcher's Guild!
Like Becky, I've been sewing like I've been posting - a little bit here and there. I have made two new skirts, one in a dark gray rayon ponte and one in black Sophia doubleknit. Today I have cut out a yellow top and plan to sew it up after lunch. The fabric is the 11 oz. rayon jersey from Emmaonesock. I've really enjoyed wearing my other tops in that fabric. I have another yellow in a lighter weight, from Michael Levine, and I think I'll sew that tomorrow or the next day. And then make some jewelry to go with the tops.

Hi, and Welcome!  Where in Philly are you?  I used to have an office in Norristown and King of Prussia.  I hope you like it here!
Saashka, how does the 1034D go around corners.  Is the foot pretty fat  or is it narrow?

I find it does a great job around curves, even fairly tight ones. Actual corners I do differently - inside corner becomes an almost straight line, and outside corner is done in two separate passes. Karen R provided a good explanation about the foot width.
One other thing I'll say is that I have the Bernina 1300 serger/coverstitch, but ever since I tried the Brother 1034D serger, the Bernina has not serged a stitch.

Thanks for the heads up, got one that was on my wish list.

Just finished watching Nancy Nix Rice's wardrobe one, it had good info.

Here's the syntax for linking from a private Pinterest board:

img width=250][/img

**  BE SURE to add the beginning and ending []'s.

I got this by dragging a semi-large pic onto a "board" in my Pinterest account and then clicking that pic to make it full size, and then right clicking that new larger pic and choosing "Copy link address."

Then, I pasted it between the resulting "[ img][ /img]" of the image insertion icon on the legend above and added the width to make it appear smaller when scrolling this thread.

:) Gene

Linda Lee has a new class on Craftsy about taming difficult fabrics... what a nice element of timing to get this one free...
I agree with Elephun--it would be sad to set up your lovely, multi-functional Evolution just to do coverstitch.

A separate coverstitch machine is wonderful, as long as you have the room for one. I heart the Janome 1000CP, which I've used for years. It's simple to use and it always does a good job.
