Find the thread end

We love Aurifil thread. It’s made in Italy to very high standards and leaves very little lint behind in your machine. The amount that fits on a bobbin is awesome too! Less bobbin changes = more sewing getting done.

When starting a new spool, it’s often difficult to find the thread end. Don’t cut it! Remove the flange or thread base by gently wiggling it. The thread end will be tucked underneath the flange!

I hope you loved this little tip! 🙂

Hi, I’m Michelle! I’ve never met a craft I didn’t like. Sewing however was where I really found my groove! So I left behind life as a pastry chef and concentrated on making things with fabric instead of food. I work at Dinkydoo Fabrics now and get to write about sewing and quilting for work. Stick with me and I’ll show you all kinds of tips and tricks, from beginner to expert maker level. Can’t wait!
