The Sewing Room podcast: episode 9 – thread tails and needles

Today I explain why Bishy Barnababes has been a bit quiet recently and what I’ve had to be spending my time doing – getting my house ready to sell! I discuss my favourite method for dealing with the thread tails left when overlocking/serging and my favourite type of needle to use. I also share something I made a few weeks ago in my sewing room. This episode: Second Star Fabric – Custom Knits UK – new round opening on 1st July Sack needle – cheapest way I’ve found to buy a sack needle is part of an assorted set (search Ebay for leather needle as it seems to find the sets better) Boo Sleeved Skater Dress
