Default TNT users (those who sew bows),

Do you tie a knot at the end of your thread? Whenever I hand sew most things I just put the tail of the thread under a stitch to secure it but that doesn't seem to work when sewing bows with the templates. A knot doesn't seem to be a big deal but maybe someone has a better way.

I always tie a knot. I feel it is more secure. HTH

Do you mean at the beginning of making the bow or the end, after creasing? I tie knots every time on both ends. That is the only way I am able to pull them tight and keep them creased nicely. The knot that I tie at the end is not as good because that is where the bows gets glued onto the clip or the other bow, so I just stitch it quickly. I would love to hear if someone has a better idea though.

I don't always use templates, but every bow I sew I use a knot so that I can pull on it tight.

Thanks. I was pretty sure that a knot was the only way to do it but if there is an easier, more efficient way I know someone here will know.
