I know it seems silly to record a video about how to tie a sewing knot – but this knot is so awesome it’s worth teaching.
When I’m sewing in public and strangers see me tie this knot – they stop and ask me how I did that. Yes – it’s that cool.
And it’s easy. 🙂
With just a little practice you can look like a sewing superstar.
I’ve heard it called a tailor’s knot and a quilter’s knot – but I just call it my favorite knot. 🙂
I use it for any and all hand sewing that I do – sewing, embroidery, hand quilting, you name it. If it calls for a needle and thread, with a knot in the tail of the thread – this is the sewing knot I use.
