Locking a Thread onto the Needle

When you make your own books--as you sew your signatures--you use a waxed linen thread.

To eliminate a little frustration, lock the thread onto your needle.

No more accidental pulling the thread out of the needle half way through your project :)

1- Thread the needle

2- Flatten a section of thread near the tail with the bone folder

3- Pierce the flattened section

4- Pull thread down onto the needle

5- Keep pulling thread until tight and locked in

Now don't you wish this worked with regular thread too?
