The (Post)man Cometh
(Disclaimer: The following opinions are mine alone. I have no connection to Superior Threads except that I am a satisfied customer.)
In these days of email, evite and Catalog Choice, not much comes in the mail except flimsy ads for home improvement companies and (thank goodness) the occasional print magazine and print birthday cards. But those of us who like to shop online also get packages!
Here's a recent delivery to my house....thread from Superior threads and needles!
I treated myself to some silk thread for applique, some King Tut thread for machine quilting and some of Superior's highly touted titanium sewing machine needles. I also bought a selection of 5 pre-wound bobbins of Masterpiece 50 weight 2 ply thread. I thought this might be a good way to acquire different colors for applique without buying whole spools.
The Superior company also has a superior website! You can learn a lot about threads, tension, needle-thread compatibility and more from their Reference Guides. And there are many ways to try their threads: Deal of the Day, Thread of the Month, clubs and collections. I've signed up for their newsletter and have enjoyed the issues I've read so far.
Superior has also begun selling fabric and you can use tools on the site to design blocks and match threads to fabrics and fabrics to fabrics.
Good products, good information and excellent service. I know I'll be ordering again. Check them out!
