the ladies in my quilt group have been tying quilts with worsted yarn for years. Now we have changed to perle cotton #3 and are having a hard time finding it.
Any suggestions on tying with something else or where we can find the #3 cotton.
In one of my quilt groups, they use embroidery floss...bought on sale and in bulk.
In another, they use those big rolls you can get of crochet thread. I find them sturdier than embroidery floss, easier to use and in the long run cheaper than using a whole 6-ply unit of floss.
I used to get it in walmart but mine doesn't have it, Joanns has some , do not know if it is the 3 ply. some of the craft stores should have it :D
I buy perle cotton at either a X stitch store or Wal-mart. Be careful with DMC--I have had some shades for on me. Would be a shame to ruin a quilt with the DMC floss.
