Circular needle

Before you use a circular needle

You want to get the kink out of it. Soak it in hot water for a couple of minutes and then gently pull it to get the kink out.

Embroidery threads

Using embroidery threads

When sewing with embroidery threads and you find you only need to use 2 of the 6 strands. Basically, hold the strands and let them unwind thoroughly. This means you get a flat thread and makes it easier to sew or embroider.

Cutting ribbon

How to stop a ribbon fraying

Fold the end in about 1 centimetre and then cut outwards from the fold at an angle. It looks pretty as well.
