Need I mention the problems with skeins… and on and on… I now have my threads on those little plastic cards made for that purpose. My baby boy 22 years old moved into his first apartment this week.
Cut one end, then braid it. Love your blog, Debby P.
I discovered your blog not long ago and I appreciate it so much. I knew you could slide the thread tail through it to hold it but that was it.
It would be a great big help if anyone did have any suggestions or could tell me what NOT to do … God bless! Now I can embroider without the thread breaking.
I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch remember the '80s? The spindle that the thread is perched upon is the jar of peanut butter.
I resort to the cowardly sloowwwl removal of the label, open up the skein, select a length and cut the skein in half. When facing a pull skein, think of it as going to war.

I do not know if the link will post here but I will try. The left hand will be holding a skein of floss and the right hand will be pulling a thread.
Weaver by WPWeaver. I do not do embroidery, I crochet, but boy, o boy, did I enjoy your post. Then you just cut off the length you want straight from the ball.Teach Yourself To Sew: How To Find The Thread
Your spool is sitting there, minding it's own business and has decided to invade your peanut butter. I hope others will comment on how they like this method.
