There is certainly more to thread than choosing a color to match your project. You can choose between a variety of threads and needles depending on the project you are making. There are lots of different types of threads- that includes different thicknesses and purposes those threads can serve. Generally, you want the thread to be a little bit weaker than the fabric you are sewing with as it is easier to repair a torn seam than it is to repair a torn fabric. For general sewing I like mercerized cotton. Mercerization is a process that makes the thread nice and shiny and resistant to shrinking. If I need something a little bit stronger, for example when sewing knits, or quilting weight woven fabrics, and need the fabric to be able to stretch a bit without breaking thread, I will go with all-purpose poly/cotton blend. Gutermann is my thread of choice for nearly any project! Gutermann thread is suitable for both machine and hand sewing. It is super strong and durable, colorfast and has a lustrous sheen. Additionally, due to the long staple fibers, Gutermann thread is virtually lint free- which will make your sewing machine very happy!
