Later this week, I will be treating myself to a visit to AQC (the Australasian Quilt Convention). I will be on the hunt for threads.
Last year, I purchased this gorgeous thread - WonderFil Frutti, which is a 12 wt Eqyptian cotton. I bought it to use in my sewing machine but, instead, have found it is a pleasure to use for hand stitching instead of perle thread. I will definitely be buying different colours of this thread.
I am also on a mission to buy thread in a range of colours for hand applique. This is where I need help from all you needle turn applique enthusiasts. Which thread do you find the best for hand applique? I know many people use silk thread, but I want to stick with cotton.
So if you have a favourite cotton thread, can you please let me know the brand and weight? I'd also be interested in the reason you enjoy stitching with it.
