Machine Stitches and Tips

With all the fun happening there is some serious creating too!
here Ann is machine quilting, notice her good posture.
TIPS: Always sit in a good chair with good support,
add a cushion where necessary.
Your machine should be in front of you an inch away from the edge
of the table and the needle directly in front of wear your nose
is looking.
Place your hands n a triangle shape around your needle,
this defines a quilting area.
From time to time stop and wiggle your shoulders up and down
and smile :), loosen your facial muscles too.
It is surprising what we tension when we are
Have regular breaks to relieve muscles and brain.
Open up the work and smooth out front and back,
re- pin or baste if necessary.
