Product Description


Hand Sewing

Cross Stitch
For best results use in 2 strands. Cotton 28 gives a delightful effect on 16 & 14 count fabrics.

Hand Appliqué
28 weight gives a great result for blanket stitch appliqué. Use it for hand blanket-stitching when you want a more delicate look.

Hand piecing
Leading artists love 28wt for hand piecing.

Hand quilting
Cotton 28 gives a great result because it stands out.

Use 28wt cotton for Bobbin & Machine Lace

Machine Sewing

Machine Appliqué
Cotton 28 is great for Blanket stitch, Buttonhole stitches and appliqué that uses thread to really make a statement. It gives a beautiful, strong edge to the appliqué shape. Use Mako 50 wt in the same color in the bobbin; Use a Top-Stitch 90/14 needle.

Machine Embroidery
Beautiful for machine embroidery when you really want the thread to stand out and make a statement. Use Mako 50 wt in the bobbin (may need to loosen the top tension a little) or your regular bobbin thread. Use a Microtex or Top-Stitch 90/14 needle.

Machine Quilting
Good for machine quilting when you desire the thread to add an extra visual impact to the patchwork top. Use a slightly longer stitch length. Use Mako 50wt in the bobbin, loosening the top tension to adjust for the difference in weight. If necessary, tighten the bottom tension by threading the bobbin as if for embroidery (if applicable on your machine). Use a Top-Stitch 90/14 needle.

Lower Looper

Longarm Quilting
Creates deep shadowing for great texture. Large needle (4.0), quilt slower than normal using gentle curves and pair with 40wt bobbin thread. Good for machine quilting when an extra visual impact to the patchwork top is desired.

I have received my Mother’s Day Surprise pack, and must admit after purchasing had some misgivings about spending that much on myself. However, after receipt of the pack am happy to advise that I am delighted with the contents. It includes useful items as well as fabrics which never go astray and a few surprises as well. I will enjoy using it.

Thank you for the prompt delivery of my order this week. A very smooth process. Also a lovely surprise to receive a free gift of fabric with the order. You will certainly be getting more business from me in the future. Sue Daley has inspired me to try new and more complicated patterns through her videos and I look forward to becoming more skilled and inventive in the future with her help.

Thank you for my latest order. Apart from the fact your products are always first class, they are always beautifully wrapped and presented that it is like receiving a present even though I know what is in the order. I am so looking forward to making my Clamshell Sewing Keep as I have not tackled clamshells before. I have watched the tutorial, another great help, and am eager to start. And if all the above is not enough, tomorrow I can start opening my 25 Days to Christmas parcels which have been burning a hole in my pocket. I wish you all a Happy Christmas and New Year and hope you find some time to sew over the busy Christmas period.
