Notion Spotlight!

July 28, 2009

When I first started to get into sewing (this past January!) I went to my Grandma B. with frustrations regarding my sewing machine, as the presser foot wouldn't make it over thick seams. A couple days later I received a Jean-a-ma-jig in the mail, with a sweet note of encouragement from my Grandma B.

I'm writing this post to share with all the novice sewers (like myself) or even the more advanced that the Jean-a-ma-jig does wonders, as it raises your presser foot enabling ease over thick/bulky seams! I'll be the first to admit that I've used it on ALL of my projects this year (quilts, aprons, fabric basket, craft swap project, etc.).

If you have any tips to share, I'm all ears! :o)


  1. I have never heard nor seen such! Thanks - there has been times this joker would have come in handy!

  2. Those are awfully handy! Especially when I'm hemming up jeans. In a pinch you can use a plastic needle case, I've done that when I can't find my jean-a-ma-jig!


I LOVE your comments, and read them all! Thank you! :)
