November 8’s SBQ is:
When you have to frog out stitches, do you reuse that thread or do you start over with a new strand?
Like most of the responses, it depends on the state of the thread. If I am frogging a huge amount I use a new thread since the thread is usually frayed far too much to reuse. If it is only a few stitches I will likely just use the same thread.
Railroading is laying your threads flat in the same manner each time. Making sure they do not twist on the fabric but rather lay side by side. To do this you just stitch “inside” your thread to lay them flat. Some people use tweasers to ensure it does this and it makes the largest effect on blended threads. This page has some instructions on how to do it.
Until the next sbq catch up!
