Thread Dampener

with 5 Comments

Having trouble with your white thread not stitching straight. Don’t want to use Thread Heaven, if you have it as it’s discontinued!!
Why not try making your own thread dampener.
I made mine 20 odd years ago and forgot all about it.
It’s just a sponge in a container that has very lightly been dampened.
If you have kinks in your old threads on bobbins run the thread through your sponge it should be straight.

    I have a mini sponge that I’ve used for years. I need to make one a bit bigger for my stitching spot so the mini one can stay with my work project.

      It’s just getting the amount of water right if I remember rightly.

    Oh, I have heard of this. I have also heard that beeswax works.

      Beeswax discolours your thread. I tried it and it was horrible.
