HNW - Re: blackwork - starting and ending Schmitt100 at

Hello all - I am a newbie here, found out about you from H-Cost.

My question is about blackwork embroidery - how do you start and end the 
threads? Nothing that I have read talks about this issue. If I were doing 
"regular" embroidery I would catch the tail of the thread under stitches in 
the back, but since you're supposed to see both sides the same, I wasn't sure 
how to start and end the threads.

Thanks for your help!
