    I need some vision, please. I'm doing a WH with a print and HST. The print is hunter green with the HST being hunter green and pale yellow. I'm going to stitch in the ditch and was wondering which color you would use?

    I'm going to practice with invisible thread but if I don't like it I need to know which color would be best. Thanks for any suggestions.

    I think I would go for the green, but if you decide to opt for the invisible, be sure and get the polyester. There have been previous threads about this and that was the general concensus to use for invisible thread.

    I would probably go for the green as well. Welcome to the board from Southern California

    The green is my choice. I have used invisible thread and loved it.

    Nylon invisible thread stretches and that causes a lot of breakage problems. If you buy a cone of good quality poly invisible thread, it will probably last you 20 years. :D

    I would opt for the Hunter Green thread.
