TIPS & TRICKS!

MAKE SURE TO PUSH THE NEEDLE ALL THE WAY DOWN INTO THE CLOTH BEFORE GOING TO YOUR NEXT STITCH

DON'T LIFT UP TOO HIGH! LIFT YOUR NEEDLE JUST ENOUGH TO GLIDE TO YOUR NEXT STITCH

WHEN TURNING A CORNER, ROTATE YOUR NEEDLE WHEN IT'S PUNCHED DOWN INTO THE CLOTH

THE NEEDLE "CHANNEL" SHOULD ALWAYS FACE THE DIRECTION THAT YOU'RE PUNCHING
