We never cease to be suprised how many people buy beautiful pure cotton fabrics and then want to spend pennies on inferior thread. You are investing a lot of your time making your piece so it makes no sense to skimp on the thread, buy the best you can afford. You won't regret it. Good quality threads sew better and tangle less. They may be mercerised, waxed or glazed to sew freely and won't lint. We have a range of threads for quilters and embroiderers in cotton, silk and polyester including some beautiful variegated threads.
