I was kindly greeted by Josh Every, general manager of Superior Threads. Everyone at the Warehouse is just so nice and willing to jump in and help you at a moments notice. And Isn't this a fun quilt!!! It highlights all of the different types of threads that Superior makes. So awesome!!
And then it was time for some shopping!!! Seriously, is this not just eye candy!!! Row, after row, after row of beautiful colors all wound on spools. Ya, we were "shopping" for 2 hours :)
I quickly found a box of my new favorite color, 402 Pearl!!! Ahh, it is just perfect for white backgrounds :) Love it!!!
And, then the purples, oh all of the wonderful, wonderful purples!! You all know I love purple so I had to take a quick shot with my fave ;)
Quick Tangent - Since I happened to be sporting my Sew What Fat Quarter T-Shirt I posted this little selfie!! Have you heard of Fat Quarter Shops new Selfie contest?? Take a selfie wearing your Sew What T-Shirt, and then post it with the hashtag #sewwhatselfie and be sure to tag @fatquartershop. They will be giving $100.00 gift cards to the winners!!! You can see all of the details of the contest here ;) So fun!!!! Where will you be when you take your selfie??
So back to our thread shopping trip ;) This is what our little cart looked like close to check out ;) We might have added a few more spools and some needles ;) You will notice there are a lot of different types of thread in there. I am often asked how I choose what thread I like to use. Well . . .
That is the thing I love so much about Superior Threads. Every thing you ever wanted to know about thread is on their website. They are huge on Thread Education!!! Seriously, here is a shot of their Education Index, and each of these topics have anywhere from 10-30 articles on the subject. Let me tell you, the Tension section, A total lifesaver for me when I started on the long arm!!! And you can also check out Superior Threads blog, they have fun posts that will make you a Master of Threadology :)
And just in case you are wondering, on the long arm I use Omni in the bobbin, and So Fine on the top, when I am blending . If I want a bit of a pop, I will use Fantastico or Magnifico in the top and bobbin.
It was such a fun visit!!! Thanks again to the folks at Superior Threads for making thread shopping oh so much fun!!! And really, if you ever find yourself driving in Southern Utah, it is totally worth the stop!!! Oh, I could get lost in there for hours and hours :)
Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
