I had no idea there was a right way and a wrong way until somebody shared this secret at a guild meeting a while back. The way you thread your needle really makes a difference. Want to know the secret?
Pull the thread out and cut it off at the length you want it. Using the FRESHLY CUT END, thread the needle. No more fraying!
It has to do with the way the thread is wound. When you use the freshly cut end, it doesn't pull the different strands apart. Cool, eh?
I guess there is a trick for how you pull the thread off the spool so it doesn't twist again, but I haven't figured that one out yet.
