WONDERFIL DECOBOB THE CHOICE OF QUILT TEACHERS
SUCCESSFULLY SEW WITH FINE 80-100WT THREADS
Have you ever heard about 80 and 100wt thread?
These ultra-fine threads are totally game changers when it comes to piecing, appliqué, quilting, and even as a bobbin thread. However, since most sewing machines are calibrated for medium weight thread, such as a 40 or 50wt, sometimes you may need to make some minor adjustments to your machine when sewing with this thread.
We always recommend a needle size of 70/10 or 80/12 when working with these threads.
A bigger needle will punch a hole that’s too large for the thread, so the thread will be sitting in a hole that’s too large for it to fill, resulting in an ugly stitch. The thread will also move around more in the larger eye, so a smaller eye will give you more control of the thread
Remember to change your needle after max 8hrs sewing.
A bent needle can knock timing out on your machine, a needle that has a burr can cause thread breaks.
