Tip for Keeping Track of Top Stitch and Edge Stitch Settings

Are you ever working on a project, switching back and forth between regular seams, top stitching, or edge stitching, and find that you forget which stitch length or needle position you were using?  I have a quick and easy method for keeping track. 

I use a dry erase marker to write on my sewing machine the settings that I want to remember.  Since I do a lot of late night sewing, my brain easily gets foggy and forgetful.  Writing the settings on my machine allows me to be free of trying to remember that detail (now I just have to remember to actually switch back and forth at the appropriate time!).  Then, the dry erase marks easily wipe off when I'm done.

Do you have a favorite sewing tip?  I'd love to hear about it.


What do you think? I would love to hear!
