    When sewing with netting, you can see the fabric below which is marked with lines to follow. Sewn-thru requires you to sew two large pieces of fabric without being able to see the underlying layer. Add to that the slipperiness of nylon and interesting (but unwanted) things begin to happen.

    Oh boy I remember those battles... For those tackling sewn thru, layout you chamber lines, place a back light just in front of sewing machine bed, turn out room lights, and viola... you can see both lines and get things nice and straight....
