I had to learn to do some embroidery stitches so
I could play along with the other Stitch Me Up hoppers.
After some not-so-good attempts, I think
I finally have the hang of doing some of the simple stitches.
I hate threading that needle with embroidery thread!
It misses the hole.
It hits the hole, but splits the thread.
It, it, it.....MAKES ME CRAZY!
I've tried a few different needle threaders:
The little wire loopy ones...
great for regular sewing thread, but they break with thick thread/floss.
The little push-it-down and it threads...
most take specific needles and I like my
John James Size 9 needles which don't seem
to work in those gadgets. Of course, it could just be me.
What or how do you thread your needles
with embroidery floss/thread/whatever that is thick?
P.S. Don't forget this starts tomorrow!
