Using viscose threads etc

Viscose Rayon threads have a beautiful sheen. However, most people shy away from using them as they are considered difficult. Sadly this means that amazing textural effects are lost, but the remedy is very simple. The problem is usually static electricity. There are two simple ways to remove this. One is to remove the vegetables and store your threads in the refrigerator! Don’t like the sound of that? Well, use option 2…..

Keep a small clean cloth or piece of kitchen tissue handy. Make sure that it is damp, not wet, and run your thread through it before stitching. You will be amazed at the difference.

Go on, give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
