Sewing Tip 11: Second Spools
Of all the neat stitches and finishes modern sewing machines can achieve, most don’t have a second spool holder. Having a second spool helps you to achieve the double thick stitch you see on clothing hems just above the sleeve, cuffs, and other edges. There’s a simple solution to this problem though. Simply tape a dowel to your machine and let the dowel act as a holder for your second spool. How cool!
