It’s no secret that I love thread. All kinds of thread for all different machines and projects.
For sewing and piecing on your domestic machines, many of you probably use Guterman. Not a bad thread until you try Metler Silk Finish, the thread I’ve been using for years. It’s like going from RoseArt to Crayola– a little better, but the other will do in a pinch. In fact, the other will be just fine if you haven’t tried the other. I mean, thread is thread, and who wants to spend a fortune on thread?
But I recently bought a box of Aurifil since one of my clients talks so highly of it. I wasn’t expecting a life changing experience. It’s just thread, remember. But Wow! There’s no comparison. It runs through the machine like butter. Or like silk. Or like air. Or like something that is smooth that goes through a machine. In fact, it makes me tongue-tied and completely lost for words.
I love falling in love.
