As most of you know, I am a "sewist", or more aptly, a quilter, and our main "ingredient", or "glue", if you will, for anything we make, is thread. So no matter how fancy schmancy our machines may be, or how lovely a pattern is, or the exquisite fabrics purchased and needed to make anything, thread is the most essential item to bring everything together. Of course, there is truly a lot to consider when choosing thread; think colors (thousands), and weight of the ply, plus what is best for each project as in type: polyester, cotton, silk, rayon, monofilament etc..
Recently, I was looking for a "simple" green thread from my big bag of thread and had to dump the entire bag to find the "exact" one I was looking for. Thankfully, I was able to find it through all the thread nests built up over time, and finished the project. As all those spools lay in wait, it occurred to me that all sewing boils down to a uncomplicated needle and thread...basic for sure.
BSolielle! The bright side of a simple needle and thread...
