Quick Tip Tuesday: Silk basting thread

Silk Thread group

Try hand-basting with silk thread, especially on delicate fabrics like silk charmeuse and silk chiffon. When you press over the silk thread it does not leave a permanent mark on the fabric like polyester thread can. Genius!

Are you making something silky and special for the holidays this year? Do share; I want to see your creations!

Happy sewing,


p.s. You can purchase beautiful Japanese silk basting thread from my Etsy shop. Thanks for considering!
