                                                        Thread Pricing

      Our desire is to involve you in this final step for your quilt as much as possible so we offer the following information about thread as well as the pricing. Although they will not be as accurate as the thread charts we have here at the studio, the colors may be viewed at Superior Threads or Bobbin Central on our Links Tab

     In the past we were told only to use cotton thread in our quilts. Today's modern polyester threads are widely accepted for use even in "heirloom quilts". Indeed, even the Smithsonian Institute is using polyester threads to mend antique quilts. Higher numbered thread weights are actually finer than lower numbers.

     Trilobal refers to a multiple filament, twisted, high sheen continuous fiber thread. It has the bright appearance of rayon or silk. Triangular shaped fibers reflect more light and give an attractive sparkle to textiles.

    Starting September 1st we are going to have to start charging for the thread used in your quilt.  We will charge $.50 per bobbin that we wind ourselves as they do not hold as much thread and $1.00 per bobbin on prewounds.  We felt this was the fairest way to assess cost.
