Threads, threads, threads, how we love them. There are so many brands and types and sizes. It can be overwhelming. Some of us have been around long enough to know our threads and what works where. For others this is all new.
We’re doing our best to help you make your selections easier and more efficiently. We have launched our new thread finder!
Head on over to the website and click on threads. The first link in the dropdown shows the Thread Finder. Click on it and start exploring.
For now this is designed for those of you who love Basketweave. It is based on the threads we currently have live on the site.
Select your canvas mesh and your stitching preference and away you go.
If you are adventurous with your stitches remember at the end of the day, any thread can be used on any count canvas. It all depends upon what effect you are looking for. Tiny threads on big holes will give you an open feel. Heavier threads on a smaller mesh will give you move coverage and padding. If you like the results don’t let anyone tell you it is wrong. Embrace your creativity and have fun.
If you would like to read more about threads, don’t forget our favorite book on Threads. Threads a Needle Necessity. In it’s second edition this is an in depth encyclopedia of threads currently on the market. Need a substitute for a thread from a stitchguide? Check the handy reference guide for replacements.
