Picture the scene..

”You’ve just spent X amount of hours embroidering your piece, it has been a labour of love but it was worth it now you see it finished. All you need to do is tidy you threads up and you are done!”

Sounds familiar right?

The last thing you want to do now is rush the last step, but it is so tempting just to hastily snip them off with whatever scissors you have to hand so you can see it finished. Using a old, blunt or (heaven forbid) paper scissors for this final step can leave you with random fluffy ends that are then almost imposible to get hold of as they are so short and most likely have frayed into tiny fibers with your attempts.

This is a great time to use both your tweezers and a nice sharp pair of scissors to cut off those last threads. Using the tweezers in your non dominant hand, hold the thread tort so that when you place the thread between the blades of the snips, you get a good clean cut and no need to try and dig out the fluffy ends on your lovingly created embroidery.
