Top tip – Thread length. Always make sure the thread reaches from your fingers to your elbow; any longer and you’ll have a crick in your neck and a bunch of knotted thread!
Securing stitches – Finishing your thread. When you want to finish your line of sewing finish with a tiny securing stitch. Take one back stitch of about 2mm and sew over this 2 or 3 times in the same place. Cut the thread and no need for knots or loose threads!
