One of the most common requests we receive is for help selecting the best thread for a project. The types from which you can choose can seem almost endless when you’re staring at the hundreds of pretty spools at your favorite retailer. We turned to our friends, Ellen March and Pamela Cox from Sulky America for some expert advice – particularly about cotton thread options. Read on for their insights and information as well as to find out which myths they’re bustin’.
THIS GIVEAWAY CLOSED 12/22/17. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED.
We’re back with another Favorite Project Great Giveaway. This special giveaway series gives you a chance to win fabric and/or notions from some our most popular projects. This time, we have THREE bundles of the exact Sulky 30wt cotton thread and Ultra Solvy stabilizer we used for our super cute Sewing Patches Tote.
If you’re sewin’ and you know it… clap your hands. Show your sewing pride with these fun machine embroidery patches. We created two custom designs to show how lovely the stitching turns out using Sulky’s 30wt cotton thread. Most folks don’t turn to cotton thread for machine embroidery, relying instead on the polyesters and rayons – but cotton has such a wonderful matte finish and the thicker 30wt (⅓ thicker than the more traditional 40wt) provides a rich density. We loved working with it! Thanks to the Sulky sponsorship, both designs are offered in two sizes as free downloads in the six major machine embroidery formats. Let’s “patch things up” shall we?!
