Or how to make sure your machine never unthreads!
This thread saver tip was given to me many moons ago by my good friend, Jennie, and I LOVE IT!
As a result, my machine is always happy and at the right sewing level. It never unthreads, and I don’t have lots of hairy bits of thread to cut off or that come through onto the right side on my work.
Just a thought for those of you who are organised. Why not swap that tatty bit of fabric for, say, a couple of squares, or those cut off triangles that are in a box, and make another quilt without even thinking about it! Check out the book called Adventures with Leaders and Enders as food for thought.
