Now start sewing! And remember to grasp the 4" thread tail every time you pull your needle through the fabric.

So I just showed you the one strand method of threading your needle. Use this method when you are about to sew hems, do slip stitching, or any other sewing that will not need to be extra durable and will benefit from low profile stitching. If durability is a priority, use the other method: two strand. The two strand method is "double" the strength! It uses two strands of thread and is perfect for seams, sewing on buttons, and tacking.

Learn how to thread a needle using the double strand method by visiting my blog post here: http://artandneedlework.blogspot.com/2011/03/30511-tutorial-threading-needle.html

    Some people ‘wet’ the end of the thread. Don’t do this, wet the needle instead. Voila thread goes through easily.
