When Thread Is Too Short for Even One More Stitch

Oct 10, 2008

We’ve all experienced the need to bury or knot a thread tail that is shorter than a needle. One easy solution is to position the tip of an unthreaded needle where you want the thread to disappear, and push it through the fabric, just up to the eye. Then thread the too-short thread through the eye and pull the needle and thread tail all the way through. An Easy Threading needle (the kind with a spring-closing slot at the top of the eye) makes my tip effortless– instead of pushing the thread tip through the eye, you snap the side of the thread through the slot.
