HEAVY DUTY PROJECTS: When sewing coat buttons, using an extra heavy-duty thread is a great way to prevent lost buttons. Here, we used Coats & Clark Dual Duty Plus Button and Carpet thread. Never use these extra heavy hand sewing threads in your machine, unless they specifically state they are for machine sewing. For instance a jeans and denim thread, which is also heavy, can be used for topstitching on heavyweight fabrics or rug binding using a larger denim needle and a longer stitch length. The Dual Duty Plus Button and Carpet thread was used for attaching the buttons on the Talea Coat. A heavy thread, like Dual Duty XP® Heavy, gives a bold, prominent look to topstitching. It is 3-ply and extra strong for sewing heavy upholstery or items where extra strength is needed.
