Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
We had a subthread (tee hee, no pun intended) about threads going on the Fabric discussion, and I thought it might be helpful to have a full discussion on it.
What kind of thread do you use when you quilt? The recommended ones are so expensive! Do you use all cotton? Is it ok to use regular sewing thread (e.g. polyester) for piecing and then use the more expensive thread for the actual quilting?
Where do you get your thread? Any great websites?
How do you save thread?
I'll reply more about this later, but for now I'll share my favorite thread site http://www.superiorthreads.com/
I buy the majority of my thread here, but I also use other brands. This website has a wonderful education section and you'll learn more about thread than you ever wanted to know! They have some great videos too!
