How do you start embroidery thread?
Turn your work over, run the needle underneath the stitch right behind the French knot… …and pull through until a small loop is left in the working thread. Pass the needle through the loop in the opposite direction that you passed under the stitch, and then cinch the loop around the working thread.
How do you secure a thread?
You take the end of the thread and make two or three loops around your right hand pointing finger, then using your thumb, twirl it in the pointing finger itself so that the loop mix up. Now ease the loops out of the finger and then pull the thread to tighten the knot.
