I noticed there was no link in the tip/technique section on how to insert a zipper Sandra Betzina style (aka the easy way that will make you wonder why you were ever nervous about installing a zipper!).

The above link is to a step-by-step video on how to install a zipper that Sandra showcases in her Power Sewing book. This is a favorite technique among PR sewers as it makes installing a zipper a breeze.

Thank you, Melissa. I bookmarked the video tip section so I can look through all of them. Very helpful to actually see the expert doing the task.

Thank you! I have the Power Sewing book, but had never seen the video. It helps so much to actually see the demonstration.
