    I am in the middle of hand quilting a queen size antique quilt. I am using Americana thread because I really like the finish and weight.

    Does anyone know where I can get any more ??

    There is a shop in New Zealand -- but --- that's a bit far. Several years ago Joannes used to carry it , but no more. I really like the smooth surface because it needles so well. I've used Guiterman and several other brands on other projects-- the Americana is really the one I like best.

    In particular I need the color linen

    I'm sorry I don't have the answer, but wanted to tell you how beautiful your avatar quilt is.

    I bought my Americana at Joann's, but don't know if they still carry it since this was a few years ago. Sorry, didn't remember you saying you had gotten it at Joann's. Have you tried Hancock's or Goggling it?

    Our Joanns still carries it, and I saw it is available at a few online stores. I use it also and it is easy to thread the needles with it because of its finish.

    The 2 Joannes stores have them here. They are always on these end cap basket type shelves....not in the aisles with the other thread.

    I love that thread also.. I have recently used Gutterman and dont like it as well. I have a couple spools of natural that I just bought at Joanns a few weeks ago. If you would like I will check our store and see if they carry Linen.. I know they have browns, blues and yellows..
    Just let me know.
