Thread

  • When hand sewing with a thread manufactured outside the United States, always thread your needle with the end of the thread you cut. If the thread was manufactured IN the United States, always thread your needle with the end of the thread you pull from the spool. Doing so will prevent your thread from tangling and knotting as you sew.
  • When sewing with silk thread, knot the thread to the eye of the needle. It will keep the thread from sliding out of the eye but is fine enough that you’ll never know it’s there when stitching.
  • I use light gray thread for just about all my piecing. It blends in with almost all fabrics unless you're working with black or navy. You can pre-wind a few bobbins so you always have one ready.
