    Is your thread stash as large as you fabric stash? Mine sure isn't. I use a lot of white and basic colors.

    I have more fabric, but I have alot of thread with just a little on the spool, and I am trying to use it up. Sometimes several of the same color.

    Mine is getting there. I have hundreds of spools of machine embroidery thread, hundreds of spools of polyester sewing thread left from when I did so much apparel and craft sewing. Now I am accumulating cotton quilting thread for the long arm. I have lots of old wooden spools of thread as decoration in the sewing studio. I also have a lot of serger thread. You can't have just one or two colors of anything. :roll: :lol: :roll: :lol:

    I have lots of thread because I have several machines. I have about 400+ colors of embroidery thread alone. I use cones thread for the basic colors and then have about 100+ smaller spools for special projects in the past and future.

    In mass, no. :mrgreen:

    But I confess that I like thread almost as much as fabric. :oops:

    Wow, I'd better get in the program. Need to start "stashing" thread. I tend to use neutral colors. Still getting used to all of this.

    I, too, use natural or basic neutral colored threads.

    mmmmm... nope.

    I confess I mostly just stick with white, tan, red, and black.
