Superior Staff Spotlight: Celeste B

Posted: 23 January 2015 at 6 a.m.

Celeste @ Superior Threads

Today we spotlight a project from one of our very own Superior family members, Celeste!  She describes her project in her own words.

“Two things inspired my project.  First, I often have questions from customers asking about sewing on denim.  Two common questions are what type of needle and what type of thread to use.  Second, I love the fit and feel of these jeans, and don’t want to retire these jeans for another decade until flare-fit jeans come back in style.

Flare Pants

I chose to use So Fine! #50 to take in the seams.  I knew it would be strong enough to hold my jeans together for many, many washings.  I love (of course!) using Superior’s Titanium-Coated Topstitch Needles on denim.  Not only are these needles easy to thread, they are incredibly durable and last (for what feels like) forever! 

So Fine! #50 and Topstitch Needles

I turned my jeans inside out, and tailored one leg first.  Once I had the fit right, I matched up the other leg.

Tailored Jeans

I have fallen in LOVE with my jeans for the second time.   This was so fast and easy, I plan to tailor several more pairs of pants like this.”

Celeste answers your phone calls and emails and is always smiling. Next time you call in or email her,  be sure to mention you read this post.
