Do you double the thread when hand sewing?
In most cases, we use a single thread for sewing because a double thread kinks easier. But sometimes it is better to have it double, for example for putting buttons, because it will speed up your sewing. Some people use beeswax to smooth the thread so it slides through the fabric easier and doesn’t kink or knot.
