We have two types of Sewing Threads: Cotton and Polyester

MasterPiece Cotton Piecing Thread

Cotton:  MasterPiece

Our cotton sewing thread is called "MasterPiece". It is a wonderful, clean running, finer weight thread, designed for piecing.  When piecing with MasterPiece, seams lie flatter, points match, and blocks fit better. This is because it is a #50 extra-long staple Egyptian-grown cotton. Which means MasterPiece is a finer, smoother cotton that when ironed, buries in the seam without any bulk. No need for a "scant quarter inch seam". MasterPiece does it for you. The advantage of the extra-long staple is it creates a very low-lint cotton piecing thread. MasterPiece is available in many colors so there is no excuse not to match the thread to your fabric. Gone is the myth that neutral piecing colors are Tan, Gray, & Beige. If you don't want to see your piecing, you need to match your thread with your fabric. That is the "Neutral" specific color for your quilt.

Polyester: So Fine!

One of our Polyester sewing threads is "So Fine! #50". It is a smooth, strong, lint-free thread designed for garment construction, serging, and general sewing use. Home machines and Longarm machines love this thread because it is a #50/3 ply filament polyester. This filament polyester fiber displaces no lint allowing for your machine to run wonderfully, without any lint buildup. So Fine! #50 is color fast, washer/dryer safe, & can be ironed on a medium temperature setting. So Fine! #50 has a matte finish and will not reflect your stitches which makes it a perfect thread for blending. With 134 colors to choose from, you will be able to find precisely what you need for your project.
