    Question find those silk thread pre-wound bobbins

    A month or so ago I found a site that sold pre-wound bobbins of YLI silk thread. I think it was from a famous quilt teacher. Anyone know what I'm talking about. I really want to order now that I have the money and a little time for hand applique.

    I'm no expert on this, but I have read a couple of horror stories about silk thread deteriorating over a period of about 7 years. If you are interested in cotton thread instead, here is a link to bobbin collections from Superior:

    The only silk collections I could find are spools.

    It may be Diane Guadynski, she is a big fan of YLI silk thread. I doubt real silk will deteriorate. Too many century old silk garments still around.
    Got fabric?
