Christmas Advice – Don’t Buy Her Cheap Thread

If you’re gifting someone with a sewing machine this Holiday season, please do not buy them cheap thread. I know that bin near the counter looks like it’s too good to be true, filled with white and black thread to the brim.  It’s akin time fmdng a diamond in a pile of zircon. 
When you understand the impact of cheap thread you’ll thank me. It will suffice for hand sewn items but please avoid cheap thread for sewing machine use. Sewing thread, especially cottons, have a shelf life. Further, poorly spun, aged thread will dry rot and the fibers will cause machine problems or repeatedly break in the needle area.  So if th spool in the discount bin is dusty, there you go. 

Cheap thread will lead to disappointment and the Sewitch to think something is wrong with their machine.  Often it’s cheap thread.  Their needle will snap.  It’s cheap thread.  The stitches aren’t neat.  It’s cheap thread.  

Even if you buy her. Walmart sewing machine, pass on the cheap thread and invest in just 2-4 spools of quality thread.
