    Yes, you got it right! and make sure to stretch out the elastic thread when putting it on the bobbin. Good luck! Lizah

    Lizah, Am I supposed to use the elastic thread on the bobbin as the bottom thread and normal thread on top? I am just wondering as when I tried to smok something, I laid the elastic thread on the fabric and then zig zagged over it and then pulled it so it would gather. It was ok, but not quite what I imagined so I wanted ttry your method, but what to make sure I understand it correctly. Thanks for your help! Maria
