Tension trick: To test your bobbin tension pull up on thread. Thread should unwind just slightly and bobbin case should drop an inch or two. If thread unwinds without resistance and case slips to the floor, your bobbin tension is too loose. If bobbin case doesn't budge, your bobbin tension is too tight. To tighten bobbin tension, turn tiny screw on the bobbin case a smidgen clockwise. To loosen bobbin tension, turn screw counterclockwise quarter turn or less.
A tensioning trick you may not know - blog - fabric store | portland, oregon | cool cottons I use this all the time. Another tip, have more than one bobbin case. I have three, one for fine threads (60, 80, 100 wt), one for medium threads (35, 40, 50) one for really thick threads and specialty bobbin work threads.

Sewing Tips and Tricks...especially the Blind Hem Tutorial!!!
Purchase a pack of white tees (the more tees, the more ruffles you can create). Cut off a few inches from the bottom hem. The wider the panel, the larger the ruffle. Cut off one sleeve with sharp fabric scissors for the asymmetrical neck. Scrunch, pin, and sew to the diagonal neckline. If your tee is too loose around the underarm, add a few stitches or pin it to achieve the perfect fit!
