Thread Heaven

I'm still working away on this pillow.
LOTS of handquilting.
Round and round I go!!!
IF....We had more Doctor appointments
I'd be farther along.
I'm COUNTING my blessings...
but....
Not moving along very quickly here! ;/

This is a product that helps me out!!!
Maybe you know ALL about it already.
My Mother-in-law didn't....
so I thought I'd mention it to YOU!

I just press my finger on the thread...
pull it through over the "thread heaven"
and
VOILA!!!!
No MORE knots as I sew along!!!!
It's great for ANY hand sewing project.
;)


One of the ONLY problems with this product is...
IT'S WAY too small!!!
It's always getting LOST in my sewing bag!!!

  1. That looks like a great product. I use the beeswax and wonder if it is similar.

    Your quilting is lovely.

  2. This sounds like great stuff. I had never heard of it so thanks. Is this something you can pick up at Joanns or do you need to go to a LQS? Selina

  7. Difficult to see, but is it like a piece of wax that you pull your threads over before you start sewing?

  8. Sheila: Yes. Similar to wax...but not wax. The thread heaven website has a very good description of their product.

  13. Thanks for the reminder! I know you've shown me this before. Last time I embroidered I was trying to remember this little trick of yours. I need to remember this when I'm out and about so I can pick some up...

  15. is it beeswax? I always pull my handsewing thread through a block of beeswax. My kids love to handle it and smell it too.
