Last winter I was running low on thread so I looked to eBay and found an auction that suited me for what I was looking for. The lot consisted of around 18 spools of thread and 2 bigger 1200 yard spools that I wanted. The rest was nylon invisible threads. I thought maybe I could resell the invisible threads and make my money back because I got a great deal on the lot. Well they are still sitting on my thread holder.
A few weeks ago I was reading through QIAD site and read some interesting posts regarding invisible thread. I am a novice sewer to the world of up-to-date quilting and sewing, but have been sewing for 20 years-with the same type of thread! I was very happy to find out that I could use up all that thread and not have to sell it off.
So today I am sitting at my sewing machine, looking at the almost empty thread spool on my machine, and thought "I need to think about getting some more thread this week." Then I remembered the information about invisible thread I read a few weeks back. So I pulled some down, loaded it on my bobbin and tried it out. It works and looks great! I might just try it out on the top too-not just in the bobbin.
I guess the bobbin use only of invisible thread is used when quilting traditionally on your machine. I was excited to learn and try something new and had to sit down and write this in my new blog!
