Let me tell you; I LOVE IT! Hand Quilting Thread has a waxy layer to help it slide smoothly thru the fabric, and I didn't get a single knot or unruly bunch of thread while finishing my quilt! If you enjoy the process of relaxing on the couch with a quilt draped in your lap, you should try this AWESOME thread! It really made for quicker, cleaner hand stitching! I know some quilters machine bind their quilts, which I would like to atleast try once... but I typically enjoy the process of hand stitiching the binding. I should mention I prefer to use Gutermann thread for almost everything I sew... but I'm sure there are other brands out there that work just as well. I just haven't experimented with them yet as I haven't had a need to, ya know? I guess I stick with what I know. If you've tried Hand Quilting thread - let me know how you like it, or if you have used other brands.
ps ~ do NOT do NOT do NOT use this thread in your sewing machine as the wax coating will not play nicely.
