I stumbled upon a playlist by The Brass & Mortar Uniform Depot and Tailoring Shop. Example video:

Thoughts?

Interesting technique, when I sew on buttons, I use 4 threads and drag it through a block of soap but its only so so in terms of non-tangling the threads. This looks like a good technique.

That's the way I've seen it done elsewhere, except I thought you could do several strands at once.  The idea of knotting the threads at the end is interesting; I've been putting them in an envelope, baggie, or winding them around a business card. I've never heard of anyone ever using carnuba was.

I, too, have heard of others waxing several strands at once. I like the business card idea. I have been using small paper or cardboard cylinders to wrap strands around them like spools. Much like the cardboard found on cheap clothes hangers but cut up into multiple tubes. They came with a cheap portable sewing kit, the only thing I kept were the makeshift spools. A lot like these: http://www.jandofabr...kit-277x300.jpg

Good idea. Maybe one day I'll treat myself and buy some thread cards and organizers from Maison Sajou.

You might want to check out my new video, 'How to use a Needle & Thimble':

 

 

Still working on the buttonhole video and pattern drafting, my assistant is working hard to get these videos ready for you all soon.

A few days ago my assistant set a channel on YouTube to host all my videos in one place.

 

Hope you find them useful.

Andrew Yamato has taken a short break from this project, should have more available soon.

Guess you can't edit posts after some time has passed. Nevertheless, here's another video I produced to share with you all demonstrating the slip stitch:

Rory,

 

These are great, so much insight in so little time.  Thank you for taking the time to produce those videos, I know it's time consuming. 

 

Below, I've posted pictures of my first go at the felling stitch.  It was a bit slow to start, but didn't take long to get the hang of it.

I've got much more practicing to do.

 

Please feel free to leave any constructive feedback.  

 

Cheers!

Thank you.  The detail, e.g., the optimal number of stitches per inch, is very helpful.
