When I bought my first long arm from the manufacturer of this machine, I got a few spools of thread. The threads were from Superior Thread. Shortly after I bought the long arm, I flew to the US and, as you can easily guess, a large part of my luggage was occupied by large spools of Superior Thread, because I knew that they were difficult to find in Europe. Later, I replenished my stock of threads when I was at Festivals of Quilt in many European countries. A few years ago I found the Italian company Aurifil, which quickly found its place on the quilt market. Unfortunately, although it is an Italian company, all production is aimed at the American market. So I was importing thread from America again, possibly for a double fee :P I even became a representative of Superior Thread but the pandemic time was not good for ordering. The constant shortages of stock at the thread manufacturer effectively discouraged me from placing orders.
When my younger son asked me to do a graphic and sewing project together, the problem of black thread availability arose. The threads had to be the same for all the blankets my son designed. My job was to do the quilting. And here my friend Ela came to the rescue, who also deals with professional quilting. Earlier than I, Ela started looking for good quality threads for longarms. Ela also had a similar thread availability problem. After all, we use kilometers of thread for quilting! Here it is! Polish company Ariadna threads! Ela recommended the threads of this company and thanks to her and these threads I was able to finish a huge quilts project I will write about this project in the next post.Link to Ela's blog HERE .Today I want to tell you and show you how Artyn threads work. In addition "tons" of black thread ( to my son quilt) , I used beige thread to the quilt "Picnic Time" (more about this quilt in the next posts)
Beautiful, delicate turquoise for the pillow, which I sewed as a quilt set.
And I already have another top on my frame. This time I will be quilting with the natural color, i.e. Off white. Subscribe to my blog and YT channel. Then you will be sure that you will not miss any news. Hopefully now that I have good quality thread available, my tops will finally be finished. I recommend these threads to you, and if you want, you can buy them in the Silesian Quilt shop.
