I just realized that Wednesday passed right by me this week – not sure why, so my ‘words’ are a day late.
I just read another blogger, who does ‘Tuesday’s Tips’, and encourages others to join in with tips of his/her own. This week’s tips are all to do with thread. So I added the following:
When hand-sewing, thread the needle so that the thread is running in the same direction as it comes off of the spool. If you get confused by this, as I do, pull a length of thread off the spool, thread the needle, then cut off the length that you want. Easy peasy!
But why do this? It minimizes, and may even eliminate the twisting and tangling and knotting of the thread – so you won’t have to stop and undo that little tiny knot, or find that big loop of thread on the back of your project.
Happy knotless sewing! Blessings, Peg
