Thread Month - what weight to use when?
When to use what Thread
I don't about you, but I always get a little confused about what weight to use with what project.
The standard default always goes to 50wt for piecing and 40 weight for quilting, but what about the 28 wt, 12 wt, 80 wt? When do you use those?
Really, it is simple, a simple guide to broaden your understanding of Thread Weights.
This guide is specifically for Aurifil Threads:
This blew me away too! So many more uses than just piecing and quilting! I have used the 40 and 50 wt in my embroidery machine and loved the matte look as opposed to the shimmer embroidery threads.
We are celebrating thread this month! Just second in line to fabric as much needed - reach out and explorer the flexibility of these cotton threads in lots of beautiful colors.
