    Hi hand quilters,
    Has anyone used this? If so, did you like it? I saw it at a LQS and later at Joann's. One of the greens is a perfect match for a project I have in mind for the fall but wasn't sure if anyone else had used it.
    When I checked it for the color match, it seemed thinner than the Coat's and Clark thread I used years ago. Less stiff, as well.
    Thanks in advance,
    lots2do

    LOVE Gutterman's thread. It is so much better than C&C. You should give it a try.

    I can't give you an answer pertaining to this particular thread, but I have been told that you can use about any thread for hand quilting. I am presently using a Presencia thread that I got at a LQS. It was the right color for what I wanted. It is not stiff like regular hand quilting thread but it is working. I have even used a gold metallic thread, but don't recommend it because it was really bad about tangling. It was really pretty, but a pain in the you know what.

    It's all I will use. It's sturdy and doesn't tangle too bad. C&C strips and then breaks. I won't use that any more.

    This is great to know. There are such pretty colors. Now, I just have to hurry up and piece the quilt I want to use it with!
    Thanks again.

    It is a fabulous thread. They make it with the sort of waxed feel (stiffer) for handquilting and then without the sort of wax coating for machine quilting. Course my all out favorite is King Tut.
