This may be the most simple, basic Tip ever in the history of PR, but it's helped me a lot. I was starting a 'Sewing for Dummies' doll clothes pattern, reading all the instructions, when I came across this tip - 'Keep the bulk of your material to the left of the needle.'

Believe it or not, I'd never heard this before - and it certainly made my sewing much easier ! I'd pretty much stuffed fabric in there any which way. I didn't think it mattered - when I"m working with six inches of fabric, does it really make a difference ? Yes, it does.

Apologies to everyone here who's known to do this for years, but there may be one novice who doesn't ! Like me, until a week ago...
