    Where do you find this thread and does it come in different colors? I have noticed that the hand quilting thread that I use is not as heavy as the ones that my mom used when I was growing up.

    You can normally buy good quality hand quilting thread at a quilt store or there are some very good on line sources. One of my favs is jhittle.com...great prices and they have just about anything you can think of. They say they are a wholesaler (and they are), but you can buy from them too.

    I know that I have some of that beeswax in a small container as you describes but with my house in a shambles at the moment I cannot find it.

    I did go on this site. Maybe I am a little slow. I could not understand how to find the hand quilting thread on this site. Does all of their thread come on the big cones?????
