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!
you are just showing how to use the different threads. but I’m not understanding the tip. What is the tip?
The tips discussed are the length of your stitch, the type of thread you are using, the difference between cross-wound and stacked thread, and information about warp and weft threads.
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.
