A Tale of Two Threads

Normally I buy thread at Joann. Usually Gutermann,  but only if it’s on sale or  w/a coupon as the regular price for the big cotton spool (876 yd) is $7.79!  I read about Essential Quilting Thread from Connecting Threads  here and decided to try it. I had never ordered thread online…but I’m so glad I did! I know this sounds crazy…but it’s true! Their 1200 yd spool of Satin finish, double mercerized, extra long staple, 100% cotton, size 50/3 thread is only $2.79 a spool!  And it fits standard sewing machine spindles!



AND they have colors galore! AND AND…a couple of weeks ago, they had oodles of colors on clearance for $1.67/spool!!  Needless to say…I bought some…a bunch. 



Total Score!  =)


 
A Thread for Life
[What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living! Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord. Ps. 27:13-14 AMP

  1. My LQS sells Mettler, so I usually use that for piecing quilts, but I just used Aurifil for the first time to free-motion quilt and loved it. It was exciting to get through a whole bobbin without my thread breaking.
