    Re: threaded her way through

    Presumably related to your query about the sari and the use of the word "threaded".

    In this case, "she" is walking through a crowd of people in the market place. She must walk so that she does not bump other people. She "threads" her way though the crowd.

    When you next walk down a crowded street, watch how you walk so that you avoid hitting people. You are threading your way along the street.
