I just read Sewuptite's post on handsewing which was a great tip she found on Threads >> just because...: Sewing Tip#links I'm definitely going to try it. I have so much trouble with my thread tangling. Handsewing is very frustrating for me. I always try to use my machine as much as I can.
I have a tip on threading a needle that I want to share, which has worked so well for me. I wish I could say where I read it, especially if it was a blogger, so that I could acknowledge them. If you wet the Needle, as well as the thread, the thread gravitates right to the hole in the needle. It works for me every time and saves me mucho frustration. Try it!!
