Silk thread? Is that as strong, long lasting as others? Just wondering.....thanks for the tips on corralling that single thread tail...I tried the stitching into thread...caused a kind of a knot...will try the fold/thread/loop method tonite.....

One thing I do, is thread the needle while the thread is still attached to the spool and then knot it using the wrap around method, then cut. If I keep the lengths to 18 inches or less I don't have problems with knots while I sew.
