Thread Sizes - Where to buy? - moved and retitled by moderator


Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

When I was searching for threads of various sizes I had good luck at jewellery/craft stores - not pre-made jewellery but the 'make your own' places.  They are also called Bead Shops as well.  Couldn't always find the correct colour but that just meant some home modification.


Hope this is of some help.

When I need really small thread I unravel the larger stuff. It can get tricky. If you use the nylon/cotton tread the nylon is inside the smaller treads and is the same color as the whole tread. I use it for seizing and sewing on bolt ropes.
