Default quilters knot learned!!! finallly!!!

i'm 66 yrs old. and have never taken the time to conq. the quilters knot. any ole' knot in the end of the thread was good enough for me.
With a sick grandkid, and he was deep into a movie, i just decided as i was sitting there hand quilting on my 2nd dear jane. that i was going to learn it 'by darn'.
so I went to u-tube, and found one, and the 2nd one i clicke on, just explained it sooooo easy.
puduq. ky yo yo quilters--THANK YOU!!!!!

thread your needle.
put your needle in your right hand,
and the END of the thread in the left hand. point the end of the needle and the very end of your thread AT each other.
then lay them side by side on top of each other . grasp both with your right thumb and forefinger.
with your left hand, wind the long length of thread around the tip of the needle 3 times.
with the left forefinger and thumb, grasp the wound thread on top of the needle and thread.
slide it all the way down your needle to the end of the thread. clip to 1/4 inc.

don't you think it was about time that i learned this? walla. done. learned.

Are you left handed? I do it just opposite. I hold the needle in my left hand, and wind the thread around 3 times with my right hand. I am right handed, so would that make a difference? Not that it matters, as long as you get the knot made!

That is the same YouTube video that I learned it from!! I could not figure it out for years, and then finally went looking for instruction. They did a great job in explaining and showing.

just type in u-tube quilters knot. and you will get a selection of vidoes to choose from. the first one was silent, and went toooo fast. the 2nd one i clicked on happended to be them. pudq, ky yo yo quilters. i have watched the instructions before, from a 'day' lady. and she was just real nice and good, but i guess i just wasn't in the mood to have it stick. for some reason it just clicked today, and the the knot was great. not too big, and not to little. neat and precise.

I learned the quilters knot at an early age, it wasn't called the quilter's knot but how to tie a hook to fishing line! LOL

I have used the quilter's knot for years but recently found a youtube on keeping one strand of thread on your needle. I tried it and it works! Now it is so much easier for hand sewing my binding down. Youtube rocks!
