Essential Hand Stitches

poo | Posted in Feedback on Threads on

in Jennifer Sauers article on Essential hand stitches, she mentioned coating the thread with beeswax, but she failed to mention that you should run a hot iron over the wax coated thread to imbed the wax into the thread. Without this step you usually just end up with a large lump of wax on your fabric at the very first stitch, and/or it plugs up the eye of the needle.

    Don't you end up with wax all over your iron?

      no it works very well . There are no knots and the thread doesnt get worn by the continuous friction.
