Is this not done anymore? When I took home ec, they taught us when starting and ending a sew line, to back stitch to secure it. Meaning you go forward 4-5 stitches, go back, and then go forward again and finish your sewing. Then repeat at the end.
I was watching some quilting shows tonite, and they did not do that. Was that just for the show, in order to move it along faster, or do people not back stitch anymore? If it's not done anymore, how are the stitches secured so that they do not unravel?
