Bird's Nest Kit
Untangle bird's nest mishaps!
We've all experienced the tangle of threads known as a bird's nest. Our hoop becomes attached to the throat plate—practically immoveable as we struggle to dislodge the tangle of thread that has a tight grip on our hooped fabric and machine. Standard scissors are too large and short to reach the tangle of threads. If only there was a tool to easily reach underneath the hoop to trim and free the hoop from the machine. Now there is!
The Bird's Nest Tool Kit includes two clever instruments: a Stitch Releaser and a Thread Hook.
DIME Perfect Alignment Laser
Let your PAL guide you!
"PAL makes it so easy to hoop square. I just line up my inner hoop's horizontal and vertical center markings with the illuminated crosshair, firmly hold the inner hoop and insert it into the outer hoop. Now I know my fabric is square in the hoop. At the sewing machine, PAL helps me guide the fabric edge for precise seam allowances. I don't know how I survived without PAL all these years." - Eileen Roche
