I have a sewing confession to make: I rarely use anything other than ivory or black thread in my serger. If my fabric is light, I’ll use the ivory, and if my fabric is dark, I’ll use the black.
After deciding to put my Polly Top on hold for a bit, I pulled out some coral-colored sweatshirt knit from Mood and my Style Arc Nina Cardigan pattern. When I was cutting the pattern pieces out of the fabric, I realized that neither ivory nor black would do these seams justice. Plus, the openness of the cardigan meant these seams would be on display more often than most. So, I made my first trip to Joann Fabric since moving to Seattle. It was surprisingly far away! A few coupons later, and I was the proud owner of a set of bright coral serger threads. Color coordination for the win!
How many different colors of thread do you typically keep around?!
