This is good to read, I really could have written the op!
I found some Pearl Cotton, .89 for a 75 yd spool, from an online place in Texas. Haven't tried it yet, I just got it yesterday. It's Size 8, I hope that's the right size.

I just read a post, with pic, that #8 was used. Yay!
Because I bought $101.90 worth, included a few other things besides thread, there was no shipping charge, and for some reason I got a discount of $10.19
