    I am in the middle of hand quilting a queen size antique quilt. I am using Americana thread because I really like the finish and weight.

    Does anyone know where I can get any more ??

    There is a shop in New Zealand -- but --- that's a bit far. Several years ago Joannes used to carry it , but no more. I really like the smooth surface because it needles so well. I've used Guiterman and several other brands on other projects-- the Americana is really the one I like best.

    In particular I need the color linen

    I'm sorry I don't have the answer, but wanted to tell you how beautiful your avatar quilt is.

    I bought my Americana at Joann's, but don't know if they still carry it since this was a few years ago. Sorry, didn't remember you saying you had gotten it at Joann's. Have you tried Hancock's or Goggling it?

    Our Joanns still carries it, and I saw it is available at a few online stores. I use it also and it is easy to thread the needles with it because of its finish.

    The 2 Joannes stores have them here. They are always on these end cap basket type shelves....not in the aisles with the other thread.

    I have 3 spools of Americana Quilting Thread 100% glaced cotton U.S.A 150 YDS 137 M that I paid $.99 ea. for. If that is what you are looking for; how about a trade? I can put it in the mail tomorrow. :)

    I also love this thread and did find mine at Joann's. I have some of the C&C Americana but it is a machine quilting thread. I do also have two new spools of the linen colored American you are looking for. Let me know if you need me to send it to you.

    I have PM'd you -- I think a trade is a nice idea -- Now that I am back in Maine for the summer, the nearest Joannes is 50 miles away. The WA Joannes doesn't carry American any more.
