Meaning there will be more tips to come. Hoping anyway :)
Topstitching thread: need some and don't have any? Instead of taking a trip to your fabric store, add a second spool to your machine. Just thread it through your machine and needle the same way as your first, putting both threads through the needle hole. Looks just as good as regular thick top stitching thread. Trying using two similar but not quite exact shades when topstitching woven fabrics with mulitple threads such as tweed to get a better blended look.
