You need to use FABRIC GLUE! I get mine at Jo-Ann fabrics. Not the Aleenes brand tacky glue, but the Aleenes STOP FRAYING glue in the white label. This is formulated to remain soft to the touch, and also flexible, or (SUPPLE) when furled, or moved in any way. This way it won't be stiff, and hard when you attach your rigging. Apply this to your thread to keep it from unraveling, then once it's dry you can then superglue then ends to your model. I hope this helps.

Maybe a picture of a squirrel playing a harmonica will make you feel better?
