    Right now I am tailoring a wool coat, and after that I haven’t decided yet, but most likely a suede vest. Gutermann is my favorite thread! My machine loves it.

    Well 95% of the thread I buy is Gutermann, so pretty much everything. I just got a fabric shipment yesterday where I ordered matching threads for most of the fabrics so I can say a lot of the stuff I’m planning for next month already HAS thread, but man, I love having a large selection to choose from so I don’t have to make extra trips to the store if I don’t have something to match what I’m working on.

    I would use this thread to finish my UFOs and I would then try some wide legged heavy pants since we are just at the beginning of winter. I would make a few dresses for my granddaughter, and I would delight in having any color of thread I would need for any project that I decided to try.

    I have a bunch of coasters and placemats to finish off. These threads would be perfect, as they are all varied funky colours.
