How to start a new thread

Hello everyone,I was wondering if anyone had a good resource, or advice, on how to begin a new thread when a bobbin runs out.I have been working from the book "Lessons in Lace Making" by Doris Southard. Although I find this to be an excellent teaching text, the brief instructions she give on mending a thread is not clear to me at all.
