    What thread should I use?
    Choosing thread can be tough because there are so many beautiful fibers to choose from! There are lots of textures, types , and colors, and it may be a challenge to know where to start. Like our stitch quick guide, this is meant to be a starting point. We'll continue to expand this list over time to make it a robust resource. As always, reach out to us with questions or stop by the store and we can assist you. Happy stitching!
