ASL language tip on choosing thread and a description of the way metallic thread tends to twist and how to avoid it. I explain using a bowl to put the thread in next to your sewing machine, instead of on the spool holder, so it arrives smoother as it enters the machine. I also describe a few different thread types. ASL requires more video time for explaining so I will in future post further tips in brief video clips.

I learned signing mostly from Deaf friends starting in childhood. I'm sure my skills aren't so great but I think the main points get across haha. A Deaf person could do a more elegant job, but I haven't seen much in this venue so I figured why not? Its great your son has an interest!

Just curious-where did you learn sign language? I've been going to email my son's sign language teacher about your website. His wife is deaf. My son really enjoys sign language but unfortunately he can't continue it in high school-too many colleges don't consider it a foreign language.
