If you are lucky enough to live close to a really good sewing store, then you’ll no doubt be aware that there is a dazzling array of threads you can choose from. Not only are they available in a rainbow of colors, but also in differing thickness, and fibers. All intended for different fabrics or applications.
Check out this Thread Infographic created by Deanna from Sew McCool. Everything you need to know about thread at a glance. Pin it to your sewing tips board so you can always have a handy reminder on thread weights etc. It can be confusing that sometimes heavier thread is a larger number, sometimes it’s rated with a smaller number – depending on the system used!
