Insider Secrets from the Garment Industry

In ready-to-wear manufacturing, no one uses pins or basting. And with good reason. It would take too long, and sewing with pins reduces accuracy.

Not exactly what they told you in home ec or even in all those books on sewing. Pins have their uses, but when it comes to sewing seams, most of the time you don't need them, and you don't want them.

That dreaded homemade look is why a lot of people give up sewing, especially garments. Or they go into quilting or home decor.

Sewing without pins or basting will speed up your sewing and the results are professional-looking. It takes a little practice but is easily mastered once you know how.

You have lots of opportunity to find out more about Islander Sewing Systems.

Or take a course with Janet in Oakville, ON May 29, 30 & 31, 2012.

You really will be amazed at the dramatic improvement in your sewing skills once you learn these skills.
