Charlotte's Fusible Web by Charlotte Warr Andersen - 115yds
 
(0 reviews)  

Once in a while, a new idea or technique or product comes along that revolutionizes the way we do something. Such is the case with Charlotte's Fusible Web, a new fusible thread.
Charlotte Warr Andersen is the creator of one-of-a-kind pictorial quilts specializing in fabric portraits that feature meticulous hand appliqué. Charlotte is a two-time Best of Show winner at the International Quilt Festival in Houston and also won the top prize at the 2003 Bernina Fashion Show.

Why a fusible thread? Ideas, techniques, and results are amazing. Here are four uses:

a. It makes fusible appliqué work amazingly better. Instead of using iron-on webbing in between layers that makes the finished item stiff, Charlotte's Fusible Web fuses the edges, leaving the appliqué unbelievably soft. Click here to view a tutorial.
b. It makes machine binding a lot easier and faster. Simply wind Charlotte's Fusible Web onto the bobbin and apply the binding with a small zigzag to the back of the quilt. Turn to the front, press, then stitch into place. . Click here to view a tutorial.
c. It makes holding a zipper in place so much more securely. d. It makes facings lay flat and eliminates hand sewing.

Magnifico Thread - 500 yard spool
 
(0 reviews)  

After many years in development, Superior Threads now have a polyester thread that has the high sheen of trilobal and the strength of filament polyester. It is a high tenacity (strength), high sheen trilobal filament polyester called Magnifico. Magnifico is unlike any other thread.

Here’s why:
Magnifico consists of four main strands of thread. Each of these four main strands consist of 48 high strength micro-strands. Two 48 micro-strands are twisted together into Set A. Another two sets of 48 micro-strands are twisted together into Set B. Then Set A (total 96 micro-strands) and Set B (total 96 micro-strands) are twisted together to make the final product. Magnifico is a thread made of 192 high-sheen, high strength micro-strands. The result is a strong, bright, beautiful 40 wt. thread ideal for quilting and embroidery.
