Top Tip Thursday – cone threads

Cones can be an economic way of buying good quality thread, particularly if you are working on a project which requires plentiful stitching…all you patchworkers/curtain makers out there! However, accommodating the height of the cone can be awkward on a domestic machine. Please have no fear – grab a wide necked tea cup and use this to house your cone in order to reduce the likelihood of the cone tipping whilst sewing. Alternatively, a golden syrup tin works very well – however, make sure you have scraped every sugary morsel from the depths or you will have sticky thread.
