Thank you very much for your detailed response! I will gladly look into those stores!
When do you make the difference between purchasing on line and in person? I have a bit of a hard time buying online but I'm afraid my "local" store will shut down pretty soon since it has become very difficult for them to exist.
So you also mix up different brands of thread and it doesn't really matter at all?
I just heard that color wash outs are common (cotton/wool) and it can look pretty bad in the end if you choose different brands. I don't want this to happen. In the past I pretty much just used polyester therefore.
Are there big quality differences by brands? (The prices at least sometimes would suggest so..)
I also wanted to try some silk threads once, is it a lot different?
thank you all so much for your help!
