Review + Giveaway: Superior Threads

superior-threads-1

When Superior Threads asked me if I was interested in testing their threads, I told them I most certainly was. I don’t put much thought into thread. I usually grab a spool of poly Coats and Clarks or something similar when buying fabric. Poly because I sew lingerie and the thread has a slight give. Woolly nylon was a new discovery – I wrote about it here – but I only use it for serging. So, yeh Superior Threads, why not expand my thread horizons?

A quick look at Superior Threads website – these guys know their threads. They have almost every type for almost every kind of project – silk, cotton, metallic, fusible, water soluble and more. If only they would sell thread that could do the dishes. Clean the litter box? Pay my taxes? They also have great videos for those of us who are visual learners.

I received their Bottom Line thread and Sergin General thread (full disclosure – Superior Threads provided me with samples – free of charge – but thoughts and opinions are my own). Below are product descriptions for each:

Bottom Line 

Lint free and lightweight blending thread that becomes virtually invisible on light/pastel fabrics. For sewists who don’t want their thread to show and/or don’t like monofilament thread, which has a sheen. Available in 55 colors. Can be used in quilting, applique and for binding and stitch in the ditch. Binding is especially easy as it glides through layers of fabric without any extra friction like other polyester threads.

Sergin’ General 

A poly-wrapped poly core thread specifically designed for serging. “The cleanest serging thread available”. With excellent strength and elongation, it creates smooth stitches with less puckering. Available in 50 solid colors which have been specifically chosen for their blending tones and ability to work with many different fabric colors. Wound on 3,000 yard cones.

My THOUGHTS

I tested their Bottom Line thread on a piece of white lace and pink elastic. If you look at the picture below, I sewed the first zig zag pass (one closest to edge) with a regular poly white thread and the bottom zig zag pass with the Bottom Line. No doubt, the Bottom Line thread is less visible, but I’m not sure if that’s because of the thread or because grey thread can act as a neutral. Gertie wrote about this here. But regardless, I think that the thread lives up to it’s product description, and I will definitely be buying from Superior Threads again.
