Another Quick Tip

I was gathering some fabric today, and I did what I always do. Suddenly I wondered if anyone else does it -- so I thought I'd pass this tip along:

When gathering, oftentimes I have pulled the threads and ended up pulling them completely through, having to stitch the gathering again. The way I avoid that is to take both the bobbin and needle threads at one end and gently pull them at the same time. This "locks" the stitching on one end, and prevents pulling the threads completely out.

Hope this little tidbit helps you. Happy sewing!
