    Hello Diane, Thank you so much for your very interesting video. I have been sewing for about 40 odd years or so, and I was fascinated to learn so much from you. I didn't know about the cross or stack winding, and the tip for a bigger spool holder so threads won't snag. Nor that one has to place spools vertically or horizontally dependent on the way the thread has been wound onto the spool. I have taken a lot away from this lesson. Thank you so much!

    Great Tips! How I remember the way to sew the strips together is we read from left to right and we read from top to bottom.
