More thread on sale……

I walked to the post office (7 blocks) to mail some I Spy kits and continued the 3 1/2 blocks to the sewing machine store to see what was on sale on their last day of business.  The Blendables 12wt. threads were down to $2 so I got a good assortment of them.  Here is a link to the Sulky site which shows a sew out of each of the colors.  They are regularly priced $5.99 so this was a good deal.  I can also use them for edging on fabric postcards and as a decorative looper thread with my serger.
12 weight thread is quite heavy and you have to use a topstitching needle with a large eye to sew with it.  I want to use it for quilting like I did on this table runner.  I showed this one the first time in 2007 when I was first blogging.  I decided I needed a better photo than the one I took with my old camera.
This gives you a better view of the quilting.  I believe I did that one with 30 weight thread so the 12 weight will show up even more.

  1. Happy table runner… made 2007 and it is still a 'show stopper' !WOW! what a great deal on the thread. I don't think too many people realize the importance thread makes, whether it is garments or quilts. J~MT

  2. Than was a good deal on the thread. I recently bought a spool of Sulky, variegated 30 weight, to quilt a top. Very nice. I'm learning about thread weights. Didn't realize the smaller the number, the thicker the thread until this week. Oh well.LOVE your table runner.
