Featured in the PR book!
I know most of you know this, BUT if you are hand sewing with a needle and you want to sew with a double thread: Don't knot both thread ends together at the bottom, instead knot each thread at the end of the thread and it won't get so twisted up. Seems too simple to work... but it does.
