Superior's Threads for Binding

Binding is an important step in the creation of a quilt; it also happens to be the final step in the creation of a quilt. When binding a quilt, it's preferred to have a fine (thin) and strong thread. Using a thread with these traits allows you to create small, tight stitches that don't add any bulk at the seams. Whether binding is done by hand or by machine, a thread with a strong tensile strength makes the process much more enjoyable. A binding thread shouldn't be visible, which is why we recommend our finest threads.
