Basting Thread Tip
I have been working on some delightful hexies for a new project and want to share with you my hint for basting thread.
When doing clothing mending on my machine, I load up a bobbin for the job, and in an attempt to not run out of thread mid-mend, I put on a little more than I might need. Rather than having loads of bobbins occupied with small amounts of thread, I unwind those ends onto an old large wooden spool that I have been using for this purpose for over 35 years!
Haven’t seen the middle of the spool for years, and clearly I needed the bobbin with the white thread on it for some other colour, given the amount that is on the spool, but I always have basting thread on hand and don’t feel like I am wasting thread!
Have a great week
