The importance of an accurate 1/4" Seam Allowance

Coming Soon:  pictures and discussion of what can happen when you don't use an accurate 1/4" seam allowance.  In the meantime.....
Test your 1/4" seam allowance:   
I've created a Quarter Inch Seam Guide to help you find and test your quarter inch seam allowance on any sewing machine. You can download it in PDF format here.  Make sure that you specify "Print as Image" as a print option when printing this file from Adobe Acrobat Reader.  Also verify the width of the 'guide' is 1" before using.
Acrobat Reader is available FREE for
reading PDF files. Click on button to
