Short Rows with a Lace Carriage

Working shortrow shaping when using a lace carriage requires a different technique than pulling the needles out to holding position.

This tutorial walks you through using a ravel cord hold method. It assumes you know the basics of working short row shaping.

Practice this technique and you'll be more confident to include lace stitch patterns in your next project!

Demonstrated on a Brother Machine, the technique applies to Silver/Singer/Studio machines as well.
