Episode 2408 Description and Preview
This episode covers the use of quilting notions — thread, in particular. Embroidery thread is a hot topic these days and Mary Fons and guest Sara Gallegos discuss how it looks in finished projects. It will be contrasted with serger thread and its use in the “looper” to create an edge finish. We also provide information about cotton threads for both quilting on the longarm quilting machine and the domestic sewing machine.
