How do I start and finish off the thread?

Thread your needle through the back of other stitches nearby to secure it when you are starting and finishing off. If you are starting in a new area of the fabric, hold the thread end with your thumb on the back and catch it under your first few stitches to secure it. When making your first stitch or stitching with an even number of strands you can use the loop method to start (as shown). When finishing off, snip the end close to where it emerges.
