MasterPiece thread by Superior truly is a superior thread for hand applique. This extra-long staple Egyptian-grown 3-ply cotton thread is fine enough to make invisible stitches. It is strong enough to hold your applique firmly in place. We also use MasterPiece in our piecing and machine quilting. We love the way the quilting stitches sink into the quilt.
It might come as a surprise to you that we do not use silk thread. We advocate using thread that has the same fiber content as the fabric we are sewing because we believe that, from a conservation standpoint, this makes sense. We always use cotton thread when sewing cotton fabric.
MasterPiece comes in a wide array of colors and that is important to hand appliquérs. We need small amounts of many colors of thread, rather than big spools of just a few colors. Superior Threads worked with us to bring you just that – 72 luscious colors prewound on bobbins that each hold 80 yards of thread!
There is no longer any need to carry big spools of thread with you everywhere. The Frostings bobbin sets are compact and light – perfect for an appliquer on the go. The reusable plastic package that comes with each bobbin set is designed to be easy to open and close. A needle and some pins fit neatly in the package with the bobbins and can be carried with you anywhere.
We do love MasterPiece thread and the Frostings bobbin sets. And we know you will too!
