    C&C new thread just for paper piecing.

    Coats and Clark has recently launched a new line of paper piecing thread called Dual Duty XP Paper Piecing. It's the one with the purple label. It's made specifically for paper piecing and it's in limited release but you can find it online at JoAnns. http://www.joann.com/search/_paper%20piecing%20thread/


    Got fabric?

    It doesn't seem that expensive, but hard to tell how much on a spool. It says it is fine and strong and doesn't distort when taking the paper off. I wonder if it could be used for regular piecing.

    I have had thread problems when removing stubborn paper in tight seams. It isn't expensive so I'll buy a few spools and give it a try.

    At BellaBoo. I had a little trouble with some paper in tight seams also. I keep a water bottle or if you use your steam iron it softens the paper and comes right off. or just fold the perforation really good and tear.

    I gave up paper once I tried the lightweight vellum. I'm lazy so will always choose the easy way. LOL

    I reduce my stitch to a 1.5 and then I don't have a problem with getting the paper to come off.

    Not sure I would trust any thread made by Coats and Clark for quilting.
