Sewing and quilting hacks seem to pop up on the Internet and make the rounds on a regular basis, promising quicker, easier results. But are they worth the time, effort, and expense? Tracie from The Sewing Channel tests and reports on several in an interesting video.
The hacks include a faster way to rip out seams, a tip for storing bobbins, a method for starching fabric, an interesting idea for producing flatter seams (found at 7:30), a special ruler for cutting strips, and more. Some work surprisingly well and some … not so much.
Watch as Tracie demonstrates the hacks and shows you her results in the video below. You’re likely to find one or more tips that you’ll want to incorporate into your quilt-making process.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
