My good friend, Jennie gave me this thread saver tip many moons ago and I LOVE IT!
As a result, my machine is always happy and at the right sewing level. It never unthreads, and I don’t have lots of hairy bits of thread to cut off. As well as they do not come through onto the right side of my work.
Just a thought for those of you who are organised. Why not swap that tatty bit of fabric for, say, a couple of squares, or those cut-off triangles that are in a box, and make another quilt without even thinking about it!
Check out the book called Adventures with Leaders and Enders as food for thought.
