Do a Google image search on "mast hoops" and look to see how mast hoops are attached on real boats. Then you can decide for yourself what size and color  thread would be appropriate. I can tell you in advance it will be thin. As for the seams, they are often sewn on model sails despite the fact that they are typically out of scale. If, for example, your sewing machine has a stitch length of 1/16" and the scale of the boat is 1:24, that means there would be 8 stitches per foot on the real boat. Very much out of scale. But many modelers like the look anyway. It's a matter of personal taste.

 

Cheers -
