| This is Part three in a series discussing the differences in threads.
A generation ago, there were very few thread choices. It was almost is if one type of thread was used for every project, whether that was piecing, quilting, clothing construction, upholstery, and so on. Times have changed and much better quality products are available today. Thread has become more specialized to enhance and improve our sewing projects.
There are differences between quilting, embroidery, bobbin, applique, serger, upholstery, and, construction threads.
Although some applique techniques call for a medium or heavy thread to show off the thread, most applique techniques intend to hide the thread and therefore use a fine, blending thread. We will discuss the blending applique threads.
