Featured in the PR book!
When you must go around a tight curve such as a rounded pocket edge or a scallop or a shaped tie, if you reduce your stitch length to a very small stitch,it will be SO much easier to get a smoother curve. You don't struggle to make that turn.
I've read this hint in several books yet have never taken the time to do it until recently. WOW - so much easier. You can teach an old dog new tricks!

great tip/reminder. I learned that at Victoria Sewing Expo a week ago in a class by Ron Collins about making pockets. Couldn't believe how much difference it made.
