  1. Thanks for the videos! May I ask how you mounted your camera for recording these? I’d like to do some videos for my blog, but I don’t know the best way to mount the camera.


    • Hi Jeanne! Thank you, I’m glad you liked them. I’m still experimenting with camera locations. For these, though, I have a tripod, which I set up between me and my needlework stand. It was awkward, and I found myself stitching with a combination of watching through the camera’s LCD screen, and craning my neck around the camera to see what I was doing! I am thinking there has got to be a better way, but I’m not sure what it is yet. Experimentation as I go, that seems to be my motto!

  2. These videos are wonderful! I’m not sure there could be a better way to film them, without having a second person involved.

    I especially liked that they were clear in the small box, and also clear when expanded to full screen. The commentary is great — I like that you weren’t shy about repeating first steps as you built on them, I find that very useful.

    Woo hoo! Great job!
