So you're decided to move away from sewing on firm and easy-to-use fabrics, and trying out a fine or open weave fabric, such as lace. One of the challenges of using these fabrics is, how do you even start sewing the seam? I think there is a tendency to want to grab the thread tails and hold them taut and just pull the work through your machine for the first several starting stitches, and hope for the best. Fortunately, there is a better way.

    Thank you for this. I’d have never thought of it. I’m making my daughters wedding dress that has yards and yards of lace! This will solve my worries.
