Ok, today I've decided I'm going to stop messing around with my choice of thread that I use! I still don't know as much as I could about the best threads to use for piecing, quilting, general sewing etc, but I do know that the price of thread over here is high! When I go to the sewing shop here in town I buy either Mettler or Gutterman as that is what they have. But, the price for a 1000 meters is over 15$. That much thread doesn't get me as far as I would like for the price. Then, when I want colored spools they only sell small amounts and you end up paying nearly double if you were to buy it in quantity. It's not my favorite thread, though. I really really like Aurifil, which I have bought in the past when I visit my favorite quilt shop in Canberra. It's expensive there, but at nearly 1500 yards per spool, it lasts so much longer. Also, it is a dream to work with! So, the question is, why don't I just buy the thread that I really really love? Today, I decided that I am going to phase out all my threads and sew with only Aurifil. Ebay and online purchasing is going to save me money on thread and make me a happier quilter/sewer!
What thread do you really really love to use???
