Today’s tutorial is a must watch for new quilters, anyone trying out longarm or free motion quilting for the first time or anyone who has trouble threading a needle.
I show you how to hide threads once you’re done quilting (you know the thread ends that you have to leave so the quilting doesn’t unravel with use). I also show you how to use a self-threading needle. These puppies are awesome. I’ve threaded up to six threads at a time on self-threading needles and hidden them all at once. That’s a real time-saver if you’re like me and get pretty nuts with your quilting and have lots of starts and stops.
You could also use a self-threading needle all the time if you have trouble threading a needle. You just snap the thread over the groove at the top of the needle and then it is threaded. Simple as that.
I hope you enjoy today’s tutorial. If you have a technique you’d like to see, tell me about it in the comments, and I’ll add it to the list of video tutorials I’m planning. Happy quilting!
