I've been doing a lot of hand sewing lately, so I thought I would do a little "hand sewing" research and see what I could come up with, for my own information and to pass along to others. I did find a few interesting things: **When sewing by hand, use about a 20-inch length of thread to prevent tangling. It is not advisable to double the thread because it tangles easily. **When taking thread from the spool, let the spool roll freely in the other hand to prevent twisting the thread. **Insert the end of the thread cut from the spool into the needle eye and knot. Pull the first stitch inside a fold to conceal the knot. **Always cut the thread on a slant - never break the thread. And last, but not least **with each stitch in hand sewing the thread is twisted. Drop the needle occasionally to unwind the thread
