Weekly Tip: Taming Thread

I don't do lots of hand sewing, but when I do, I do a little bit of prep work to make it as easy and enjoyable as possible.  To make quilting thread tangle less and go through your fabric like butter, cut thread (many different colors, or a single color) to 18" lengths.  Place it on a piece of waxed paper, fold the waxed paper over the thread, then place the folded waxed paper between two pieces of parchment, or in a brown paper bag.  Iron with a warm iron.  To store up to ten threaded needles, untangled, and ready to sew, get yourself a Clover Dome Threaded Needle Case.
