Tutorial: How to make thread bars for garment closures

    I appreciate the recommendation for this tutorial, but I don’t appreciate having to be come a Threads Insider to look at it, even on a trial basis.

      Oh, I totally get what you’re saying. I don’t like the Threads Insider deal either. When I originally published this post two years ago, this article was free. It looks like they’ve gone back and added the Insider requirement in order to view it. –Anne
