Precision Piecing - Secrets of Impeccable Piecing

SewCalGal is currently researching tools, teachers, books, dvds and just about everything available to help improve precision piecing.  As the Make It! Challenge, one of the events in the Year of Red and White Quilt Challenge,  is underway I'll also be trying to share highlights during this challenge.

Quilters Newsletter TV interviews the very talented Susan K. Cleveland (Pieces Be With You), who shares tips on precision piecing in this video:

Susan recommends for the following products for precision piecing (which are also available for purchase at her site):

The Wacker

Bohn Ultra Fine Pins

Book: Secrets of Impeccable Piecing, by Susan K. Cleveland (includes the Quilter's Custom Seam Tool)

And, while not available for purchase at Susan's site, she does also recommend Schmetz 70 Jeans/Denim needles for precision piecing.

Susan travels and teaches a variety of classes.  You may wish to check her schedule at her website to find a class in your area, or let your events coordinator at your quilt guild or local quilt shop know that you'd like them to schedule a class with Susan K. Cleveland.

Thank you so much for taking your time to post this. I am getting a list of teachers together in consideration for our guild and Susan is most certainly at the top of my list!
