New to the Shop: Thread choices!

Everyone knows I’ve never met a thread I didn’t like (except old brittle thread, no thanks!). To that end, no one thread is perfect for every job. Sometimes you need a thicker thread for your attractive topstitching. Sometimes you need a delicate bling for an accent on your project. Sometimes you need more color choices of a great all-purpose high quality polyester thread. Or sometimes you need a silk thread for your handwork. And now MD can provide you with those options!

Are you newer to sewing and need to build a “thread library”? We’re now carrying an 18 spool in your most-needed colors!
