Superior Threads has many threads which can be used for hand quilting. However, our Treasure Hand Quilting thread is specifically engineered for hand quilting and not meant to be used through a sewing machine. Using a waxed thread for hand quilting is recommended as the wax coating makes the thread stronger, stiffer, and helps to keep the thread from becoming tangled in itself when stitching.
Treasure hand quilting thread has been specifically created to handle the stress that hand quilting thread must endure for tight, smooth stitches. The special glaze coating adds strength and keeps the thread from displacing any lint. Available in 25 colors, which are perfect for heirloom, dresses, quilts, and any project that calls for hand work.
