I also use a single thread and small blind stitch which looks nice. I really enjoy handstitching my bindings.

I use double, but rarely hand sew my binding anymore.

My thoughts, too.

Never thought about hiding a knot, great tip, thanks

Exactly what I do. Like fine hemming.

single thread small stitch....and actually did use silk once because it matched color the best....it was beautiful and dissapeared completely.....one friend tried to find the stitches and teased me that "must have glued it".....


p.s. did not use glue, never have, never will ! ! !

I use single thread, I think that makes the stitches less visible

I too use a single, small stitch - stitched blind. No problems encountered.
