Alert! Alert! I just found out this is my 301 blog posting!!! I can't believe it!!!
I've learned something. Awhile ago I discovered quilting with perle cotton and really liked the look. I used it mostly for quilts for the grandkids but have since moved on to my other quilts, too. I really like the look. But even though friend Liz at Broderie advised me about the size needle to use, I still had some trouble getting the thread through the fabric. It was much better when using the proper needle size, but my thumb cracks at the nail in the winter and it's just an issue.
The shop owner said they all use perle cotton on the spool for their embroidery projects. They like it so much better than embroidery floss in a skein. She said it lays flatter, doesn't fray and you're not separating threads. But you all probably knew that already, right?
