New Thread!

Superior Threads has just come out with a new line of threads called Magnifico!I included a few cones in the September order so I could try it out. I love the silky glow of this thread. I followed the sunshine around the house this morning to try to capture the glowing sheen. It's made of trilobal polyester. This means that each stand of every fibre is trianglular shaped so it reflects the light. Bob explains how it works on the link above.

What's unique about this thread is the strength. Most pretty thread is a bit tricky to work with for professional long arm machines. But Magnifico is designed to handle the stress. Magnifico is the newest range from Superior Threads. It's available here in the UK from Machine Quilter. Use the American site as a shop window and ring or email Martha with your order.
Magnifico available now in  the UK
 for the amazing price of £9.99

  • available in 200 colours
  • ideal for embroidery and quilting
  • high sheen reflects colour vividly and clearly
  • heat set which eliminates shrinkage
  • made up of 192 micro filaments resulting in spectacular sheen and strength

Would you like to try a cone? I've got a green one : ) I was going to gift it to the first comment.
I tried it yesterday, during a workshop session. I loved it! I can't wait to hear what you think. I'll pop it round your house this weekend.
