Leader Fabric – Video Tutorial

1- grab a little fabric piece from the scrap jar and sew it first thing

2- leave that little piece in place and then sew your next item

3- when you are done stitching with your machine the pieces, snip the leader fabric or scrap and then resew it — leave it in your machine

You’ll want to start and stop each sewing project with the scrap leader in place.

It really will save a lot of frustrations and birds nest of thread hiding under your fabric.
