I’ve just started embroidering again after a long hiatus and can’t seem to help myself when it comes to buying new colors of floss. The problem comes when I start to use a new bundle of thread and instantly everything becomes tangled, not to mention the mess that results when I try to store all of my floss between uses! Thankfully I’ve found a simple solution that works perfectly and looks good too!
Things to do:
1. Open the clothespin and place the end of the floss between the large and small holes then clamp it shut.
2. Wrap the thread around the pin between the hinge and the large hole until you have wound the entire packet of floss.
3. Pull the end in between the mouth” of the pin to secure it.
