Are you machine sewing?
Machine Quilting. Excellent for detailed machine quilting involving lots of back tracking (like feathers). Creates beautiful texture when you don't want to see the lines. A great fit for Sharp/Microtex, quilting and denim needles 80/12.
Machine Piecing. You will have a nice flat seam every time!
Longarm Quilting. Excellent for showing texture where you don't want the thread to be the main focus.
Machine Embroidery. Use 50wt in the bobbin (or you can use your regular bobbin thread, just tighten the top tension a bit). Use a Microtex 80/12 needle.
Machine Appliqué. Great for showing off your fabric, as the weight disappears. Straight stitch, zig zag, bind hemming stitch and blanket stitch.
Are you hand sewing?
- Aurifil 50wt is a perfect fit for Hand Appliqué, Hand Piecing and Lace.
