Here is the full video of the liveshow about threads! We covered so many topics and the chat was on fire, so many tips and questions. Threads can be a really fascinating subject, that doesn’t get the attention it deserves I think. For instance, when I was doing research I noticed that even in the great sewing references books, threads were often covered in a very brief manner.
Topics we covered:
- Different thread materials and their purposes1
- Cotton vs polyester
- Why thread matters and how it’s calculated
- Thread durability
- Best thread brands
- Serger thread
- Woolly nylon
- Topstitching thread
- Best thread for sewing buttonholes
- Eco-friendlier threads
- And lots more!
