  2. If you leave the thread ends long enough when you remove your work from the sewing machine you can thread them through a needle eye and sew them between the layers of fabric to eliminate "dangles".

  13. When I move my cursor across the image of the siding an "Out of Stock" message comes up. If you can hold out patiently for it to come back in stock, do;I have not only used it for clapboard siding, but also for beadboard walls and flooring.
