Hi!

Jacquie Samples asks,

>stitching?

First stablize (put in the satin stitching), then cut.  And if you pull it
just slightly when you cut, the cut end vanishes into the satin stitching.
 Modern hardanger cloth is also designed to shrink just a little, so that
those little thread ends disappear into the kloster blocks when you wash it.
