I have an old school machine embroidery book called, Singer Instructions for Art Embroidery and Lace Work which was originally printed in the 1920’s. That being said, I am a little confused with some of the language. I’m just starting to learn about machine embroidery and this book is geared towards those with a straight stitch machine which I have.
Anyway, here is the passage from the book which is from the first lesson:
“..one-half inches from each other, draw the bobbin thread and make it fast, taking two or three stiches on the upper end, from this point do ordinary stitching.”
I don’t understand what does “draw the bobbin thread and make it fast taking two or three stitches on the upper end..”
Am I supposed to bring the bobbin thread up? What should i do?
Thanks for helping a beginner embroiderer!
