June 22, 2007, Newsletter Issue #101: Shortening Zippers

Tip of the Week

Non-separating zippers can be shortened by sewing (by hand or machine) over the tape several times about an inch below the desire length. Cut off the excess zipper. Separating zippers must be shortened from the top. Hand sew a new stopper on each side before cutting off the excess zipper tape.
