Hi Kath Red, I am trying to track down an old article from September 26th, 2006. Your name was listed as poster.

“Dixie writes in asking for instructions for hand hemming silk.

I have lost instructions I had years ago for hand hemming silk scarves. It used only hand stitching and involved taking a few small stitches in a certain way then pulling gently on the thread to turn the hem into a roll. Can you help!!! I am so in need of this”
