Choosing thread is key to a successful creation. Do you want your thread to be visible or to blend, to be matte or have a sheen, to be subjected to high temperatures when ironing, to be colorfast, and the list goes on.

Whether your needs are for quilting, embroidery, serging, sewing crafts or apparel, we can help you select the right thread for your project. We carry many brands in our stores to be able to offer a complete range of threads, no matter what the project.
