Susan Khalje shares a tutorial at Threads Magazine’s website for making thread bars for garment closures. A thread bar is a sturdier version of a crocheted thread chain, and can be used in place of a metal “eye” in a hook and eye closure.  Go to the tutorial(Editor’s note:  Changes to the Threads site mean that you now have to have a Threads Insider account to view this article. 7/20/2012)

    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
