Evamarie Gomez and Judith Neukam; Shot by: Gary Junken

In this video from Industry Insider Techniques Vol. 7, Louise Cutting demonstrates two methods for threading a hand-sewing needle that will benefit left-handed and right-handed sewers. She also shows how to prevent the thread from twisting. Louise Cutting shares years of expert experience in this Industry Insider installment. It’s amazing how much you’ll learn as this gifted instructor demonstrates professional techniques, such as fine hand stitching and flawless miters. This level of workmanship is second nature to pros, and now you’ll see how they contribute to the quality of handsewn garments – and how to do them yourself. The 15-part Industry Insider series shows you how to match stripes, prints, and plaids; reinforce underarm seams; sew a smooth neckline zipper finish; and many more expert techniques.

    I've always wondered about this. I'm right handed, but have used the left handed technique--no wonder I've had problems. Thank you, Louise for another great tip.
