Did You Know?

Did you know there are a few ways to lock your stitch line to keep the thread from pulling out of your fabric?

Most people know how to use the reverse stitch (the U turn on your sewing machine) by going backwards a few stitches.


But when you don't want to see all that reverse stitching there's a couple other things you can do

First, you can put your length at zero and have the needle go up and down a few times.


Another way is to pull one the thread on the wrong side until the tread from the right side loops up. Grab the loop with a pin and pull the thread until both are on the wrong side of the fabric. Then tie the two threads together.



Until next time, Enjoy your moments ~ make them "sew" much fun, Cindy
