Beeswax – waxing your needle and thread is a very important step. Waxed thread will allow threading of the needle much easier, passage for the needle through the leather smoother, keeps the thread from breaking off while sewing and holds the thread tighter until knotted.
Rub the length of the thread between the wax and forefinger. Remove excess beeswax by stripping it through a piece of scrap cotton cloth.
