RE:matress stitch:how to start question*****

hi all :slight_smile:
when seeing the demonstration of the matress stitch , it almost always shows the stitching in progress, meaning it doesnt show how to start in terms of anchoring the begining sewing up…
usually the stitch has already been anchored.
do you make a knot?
please help

I don’t make a knot, I usually just start stitching leaving the end loose, then once the stitching is done I weave it in as I would weave in any end. Where you start stitching it may look sloppy at first, but once weaved in it will look great.

TY so much!
