Sewing Tips & Tricks
Shirring thread is suitable for both manual and machine sewing.
If you want to use it for smocking and shirring in a sewing machine, you wind the bobbin with the elastic thread. You wind by hand, not too loosely and do not stretch as you wind. Some machines prefer the thread to be stretched, if this is the case you stretch it when you wind it. Then you choose a straight stitch and test out which stitch length that gives the effect you desire, usually it is one of the longest. For the top thread on your machine, you use a regular thread in the colour of the fabric.
