I have thread from my sewing years that must be 20 years old at least. I use it up piecing on busy fabrics. I take a length of it off the spool, wrap it a couple of times around each hand with about a 10 inch length between my hands and pull. If I have trouble breaking it I figure it is strong enough to piece with. We are spoiled with today's threads and you didn't see pioneer women worrying about their thread. They were just glad if they didn't have to make it themselves. Hooray for modern thread makers.
