Weaving in Ends?

We have been getting many questions during this Covid-19 time.
Last week I included a video on how to wind yarn. Our second most asked question is how to weave in ends. We are sorry we can’t be there for you 100% of the time. Hopefully, some of these videos will help until we can be together in person.

PLEASE DO NOT

do it this way. Weaving in ends along a straight line is not secure. If the strand is pulled from the bottom left corner, it will easily pull out.

PLEASE DO

change directions often when weaving in ends. You can even follow the line of the stitches as shown. Easy and secure.
If you need a video to help you- try this one.
