I’ve used the smaller spools of Soft Touch for hand appliqué but it’s nice to have a larger spool of thread when using it on a sewing machine. You can get some really flat seams when piecing. Here you have a good range of neutrals – Grey, White, and Natural.
We are trying out this new thread from Aurifil. It’s a very fine 80wt cotton thread on wooden spools – cool. So far customers have told me it’s great for hand appliqué and Aurifil recommend it for free motion quilting, machine embroidery, free motion couching, english paper piecing, and machine appliqué.. Hmmmm…….. I wonder if it will make me a cup of tea?
At the moment we are carrying a range of neutral colours but later we’ll add in some of the other brighter shades.
We have some of these hayuge cones of machine quilting cotton from YLI which we would like to clear out. Good value at $19.00 down from $23.95 – a nearly $5.00 savings. Lots of pretty colours to choose from.
