    Chart Comparing the Thickness of Different Thread Brands

    Several months ago, somebody here shared a chart that compared the scientifically measured thickness of different brands of thread, all of which were labelled as the same weight.

    i thought i'd bookmarked that web page, or downloaded the chart.

    i guess i thought wrong because i can't find it.

    does anybody remember?
    did anybody bookmark/favorite it?

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I used a microscope to look at different brands of thread. Wow, it was an eye opener. Most of the good brands looked like barb wire, all of the cheaper brands had big slubs, no wonder they shred going thought the needle. Most of the top brand were smooth and I could see why they cost more. The cheaper poly thread looked worse then the mid priced cotton thread.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.
