That Shiny Strip

Some of you have noticed and/or emailed about the shiny, tape-like surface surrounding the name on the muslin. This is residue from the heat-stamping of the name and will eventually wash out of the fabric.

Although this residue will dull your needle, it also aids the stitching by serving as a stabilizer for the thin muslin. Go ahead and stitch right through it, remembering to start with a sharp needle.
