Superior's Glow-in-the-dark Threads

Glow-in-the-dark threads are so much fun! Whether you are quilting, sewing, or stitching an embroidery project, watching the thread glow in the dark once the lights are off brings a smile to everyone's face. We have two thread lines for glow-in-the-dark threads. Both are made from a special blend of polyester fibers that have been impregnated with a glowing dye agent. The glowing pigment doesn't flake off when sewing because it has been injected into the filaments. The glowing effect will glow brightly for about 10 minutes and slowly fade over the course of a few hours. You can recharge the thread over and over again by exposing it to light for a minute.

Our glow-in-the-dark threads:


40 wt./3-ply Glow-in-the-dark polyester thread. Designed for embroidery, quilting, and decorative stitching. NiteLite is a fun, creative thread for quilting, embroidery, and decorative stitching. It is popular for children's pillowcases, blankets, quilts, and pajamas. Available in 6 colors. Expose it to light for 30-60 seconds and it will glow for hours. NiteLite can be recharged over and over again without loss of glowing effect. A dense stitch pattern will provide a better glow than a single stitch. Be creative in your next project and add glow-in-the-dark NiteLite for a fantastic glowing effect.


SewGlow is an innovative thread for heavy-duty sewing and upholstery. It is a Tex 240 (comparable to a #207 or #277 thread) bonded polyester which has special glowing dye impregnated into the fibers. The thread appears white when in light and glows a bright green or blue color in the dark. SewGlow offers you the ability to create unique sewn projects that glow in the dark. It's very strong and has a bonded coating to keep friction at bay when sewing at high speeds. Expose it to light for 60-90 seconds and it glows brightly for minutes as the brightness fades over the course of an hour. Recharge over and over again for the same glowing effect. There is no other industrial or heavy-duty sewing thread like SewGlow.
