Tip of the Month

Handling Threads


You should work with a length of thread of no more than 18 inches.  Speciality threads like metallic, rayon & fuzzy should be shorter.


If you are working with a thread that comes in a skein, cut the skein into equal lengths.  Untwist the skein and cut the loop into two halves.  You should then have the perfect length to stitch with. 


Remember to save thread tags. If you need additional thread you can use the tags to match dye lot numbers.
