Halocho #563 - Tightening stitches on Shabbat

Sometimes the thread on a seam becomes loose - and if one pulls the thread, one can tighten the seam.

Tightening a seam in this way is forbidden on Shabbat - as it's considered "sewing" - one of the 39 forbidden categories of work on Shabbat.

This week is Shabbat Mevorchim of Sivan - Rosh Chodesh will be next week on Erev Shabbat.
