Sew, Mama, Sew! Thread Post Answers
I'm writing this post to win Amy thread and Kaffe thread from SMS! It's too bad Meeting Time Gunn will no longer be my top post!
* How did you select colors for your personal thread collection?
* Do you always match the color perfectly to your project?
* Do you ever use contrasting thread?
--- Yes, but it generally matches somewhere.
* Do you use the same color in the bobbin as the upper thread?
--- Yes. I haven't gotten that adventurous yet.
* What if a fabric has big areas of very different colors?
--- I just select the color I like best.
* Do you have any tips or suggestions about choosing thread?
--- I have learned the hard way that you should not buy a beautiful collection of thread in all colors of the rainbow for $10! Do not skimp on thread!!
* Can you show us a picture(s) of your thread collection?
--- Yes! I have old and new thread. Some is from my mom's stash from years ago!
* Do you ever buy thread because you fall in love with the color (without a particular project in mind)?
--- No, I've never done that.
* Do you "invest" in thread?
--- If it means buying the best thread for the job, yes!
* What types of thread do you have? (elastic, quilting, all-purpose, wool, etc.)
--- I use mostly all-purpose thread.
