How to make a silk thread knot

You’ve heard the saying: “A picture is worth a thousand words.” If that is true, I’m wondering how many words a video is worth? Hmmm….

For quite a while I’ve been thinking/knowing that I needed to learn how to put video tutorials together. I mean, it’s not that hard to shoot a video, right? But what about the editing and uploading and all that jazz? Well this week was the week to get started. I hope you will bear with me as I learn how to do this. More importantly, I hope what I have to share is of use to you. That would tickle me pink.

So let’s get on with it. I am a hand appliquéer (is that a word?). And I love to use silk thread to appliqué. But it’s slippery, and quite often just slides off the needle. Here’s my trick to keep that from happening.

    What a fantastic idea and so simple to do. You could do that with any thread to hold it in place. I’m often yanking my thread out of the needle and get so annoyed with myself.
    Thanks Angie for the tip.

    It must be worth a million. What type of camera and editing software did you use?

    Glad to see you in the SITS craft group.
