I’d like your thoughts on this. Was paging thru some old issues of Threads and came across an article about thread by Carol Ahles –in which she says to be careful about winding polyester (or other stretchable) thread too fast. That much I know.
But she also particularly points out that it shouldn’t be wound when it’s threaded thru the needle! Accchhh! That’s one of the reasons I bought my Lily 545 which I’ve been enjoying for years! I presume it’s for the same reason — because that extra tension would wind the thread too tight.
Well, I’ve been obliviously winding thru the needle forever, and haven’t had any puckering problem. And I use a lot of polyester thread — acutally in most situations.
I will say that my sewing does not include all lycra things like swinsuits, but I do underwear and boucle knits, etc.
Do I need to change my ways before I make an expensive wadder????????
