Thread needle
take ends of thread and bring them up lay perpendicular to your needle and hold in place with your thumb
while holding there, wrap your thread AROUND your needle 2 times
move your thumb up to now cover the 2 wrappings
SLIDE the "twists" off your needle, all the way down your thread and VOILA -
you have a knot!!!!!! It is soooooooooo fast! I no longer mind doing the sewing!!! Amazing!
OMG! Thanks so much for this tip...I just got up from my computer and went to try it out and it is way better than what I was doing So much easier!

lol - i'm the same way . . . i already posted the video on page 1 of this thread - it's a french knot . . .

it's the same concept when you want to knot the thread . . . as well as ending it.
