I often find myself in the situation where unwanted bits of thread stick out onto the front of the canvas. Up t this time, I either cut the ends off or tried to pull them away from the front from the back with a needle. To be honest I have had only mixed success. There must be a better way.
To tis end I have bought and plan to tr of three stitch fixers. The Loran YTail End Weaver, pictured above is made of thin wire. It has a large collapsible eye, like some beading needles. Working from the back, but the end through and pull the offending thread through the eye. pull the Weaver ack & you’re done.
The Fiber Hider from Lilias Ralph Ralph, pictured below, two ends connected by a chain. One end has a collapsible eye, but a much bigger one than the Loran Weaver. The other end has a small hook. You put the hook through the eye and use it to grab the thread and pull it through the eye.
The final fixer, pictured below, is a thin needle, probably a 328 needle, with a 2″ beaded fob attached. it’s called a frogger. I assume you use this like a needle, but it had no instructions.
I’m getting ready to test these but I want your tips and suggestions first, what do you use to fix these stray tails & thread ends?
