Sewing zippers can be daunting. You need to use a special zipper foot and it’s easy to have them the wrong side up and not realise.
So I thought I’d gather some tutorials that explain nice and clearly how to get your zippers looking great. Whether you’re new to zippers or need a refresher, I hope these links will help you.

You’re welcome, Rachel.
I am currently making a bag in my weekly quilting class; I believe it has a zipper in it. I haven’t sewn a zipper by machine in over thirty years – back when I used to make all my own clothes. I have sewn zippers into knitted jackets by hand – it’s not as daunting as I thought it would be!
I’m sure you’ll be fine, Lynne. Maybe its like riding a bike – you never forget ;o)
