You may be wondering if it's worth spending a little more to get good-quality sewing thread. The answer is a resounding "yes!" The best sewing thread is sleek, resists friction and won't break or pucker when you're stitching. Machine quilting threads should also be strong enough to hold seams together, no matter how many times your project is laundered. By spending a little more upfront, you'll save yourself a lot of headaches along the way. Helpful tip: Go one step further – prevent your quilting threads from tangling or fading by storing them in one of our thread storage boxes.

Fat Quarter Shop has a wide range of quilting thread brands for sale, including:
Typically, a spool contains 600-1,420 yards of sewing thread, while a cone has 2,500 to 3,280 yards. Bear in mind that if you want to use a thread cone, you'll need to get a thread stand because a sewing machine spool pin can't hold a cone. Helpful tip: Thread cones are ideally suited for embroidery on longarm quilting machines.
Unlike single-color cross-stitch thread, variegated thread is an embroidery and cross-stitch floss that's dyed to provide various colors throughout the thread.
