Twisted threads

Why do my threads twist as I stitch?

This is a common problem and happens because as you pass the needle back and forth through the work you inadvertently turn it slightly each time, causing the threads to gradually twist. To eliminate any twists in your thread you need to stop stitching every so often and just let the needle hang down from your stitching. The threads will untwist themselves and you can then carry on from where you left off.
