Product Description

Details

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.

Lace
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.

Serging
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.

Your needles are wonderful and I love your YouTube videos. I have just been doing EPP this past month, and every time I have a few minute I work on EPP. Thank you for all you have done for us!

Thank you so much for processing my order so quickly and sending it in an express post bag. It has just arrived here in Hobart – 36 hours after I placed the order Sunday night. I am so impressed by your service, which is not my usual experience with suppliers in Australia, I just had to write and say thank you.

I have to say a big thank you, I ordered over the phone on Tuesday 7th March & my order was delivered to me by Friday 10th. Your prompt service was fantastic & the service I received over the phone when we spoke, was also wonderful. For those reasons I will continue to deal with you in the future, so nice to be treated so well, a rarity in today’s retail market.
