For those of you who are relatively new to Needle ‘n Thread, you might not know that one of my Most Favorite Things in the Whole Wide World is… is…
(Are you surprised? Probably not!)
I have a hard time resisting hand embroidery threads. I don’t know if it’s the color, the feel, the fiber, the twist, or everything combined – but there’s just something lovable about the stuff, isn’t there?
Over the years, I’ve written some articles that compare hand embroidery threads from different angles, and if you haven’t read them, and you’re just familiarizing yourself with the threads that are available for hand stitching, you might want to take a look at them.
Since many of these articles are a bit older, the photography is perhaps not the best, but the information still holds true!
If you’re thinking about thread shopping – and especially if you can only shop online – browse the articles for answers to your thread questions.
