Tips on Tuesdays! - > Tips Topics Please : )

Every Tuesday I post a sewing-related topic and everyone is welcome to add tips they have under that theme.  It's a sharing post.  The red button on the sidebar links to all Tuesday posts.  There's quite a lot of them.


This week, the topic is Topics.  (hehe).  I'm drawing a blank today.  I hope you don't mind.  So I would love your help.  What topics can you suggest for me to cover here?  I'll shortlist some of what has been done:
- Thread
- Fabric
- Machine Maintenance
- Needles
- Gadgets
- Color
- Printing
- Painting
- Marking
- Cutting
- Lighting
- Photographing your work
- Organizing
- Labels
- Hanging your work

What else?  I was thinking about doing "Hand Embroidery", "Creative Inspiration", "Sketchbooks", and perhaps more on "Thread Painting".  Please let me know your ideas.  List as many as you like.

Painting or texture rubbings made with fabric paint sticks - how is the longevity? washability if used on clothing?

Printing - any hints for printing with small hand-carved lino cuts (linoleum block printing) either mounted or unmounted. I have a small block I carved years ago that would work in the sashing of quilt blocks I have almost to that point.

I'd LOVE hand embroidery! I'm on my 3rd skein (?) of black DMC floss on my molecule quilt, so that idea came up before I even saw your it!! How about just plain piecing tips, I didn't see that "done" yet. I'd love to do some paper piecing too, but haven't a clue. Also, "quilt math" is something I find very little of out on the internet. Hmmm Another basic would be ironing tips (my least favorite part of quilting), or how about washing and care of quilts, Esty/eBay how-to, blogging tips...

I like the quilt math. I need a chart for size of square to cut that will make HST, QST, Flying Geese, and there must be more.

I have never done thread painting, might need that for a postcard!

i would love to know more about thread painting and how you got started. I'm trying to work up my courage to try it myself.
