I really don't get how some gals get the tighter curves I see sometimes, unless they're using one needle instead of two, which will make for a less durable diaper. I recently bought a better machine, but it actually seems less able to do curves than the cheaper one I had that jammed up all the time.

All this time I have been threading 3-4 threads through a needle to sew the threads through to lock them in place.
