New to sewing? Learn how to pick sewing machine thread in this video. The general rule is to use the same time of thread as the fabric that you're using.

Hi, I'm Cynthia Mann and we're here today at Birch Fabrics in Paso Robles, California. This is also the home of Fabricworm.com. Hi, I'm Melissa Lunden; I'm the resident seamstress here at Birch Fabrics. I teach sewing lessons here, prepare blog tutorials and sew samples of Birch's line of organic cotton. And I am here today to talk to you about sewing. So let's talk about choosing sewing machine thread. The general rule is to use the same time of thread as the fabric that you're using. If you're sewing with 100% cotton material, you use 100% cotton thread. Same goes with a polyester, or a lightweigh silk. There are special types of thread for denim, there are special types of thread for very lightweight fabrics. You just wanna keep it consistent. My next suggestion is, stay away from the cheaper threads. They fray, they tangle. You can try them out. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. My last suggestion is that your sewing machine might actually have a preference. I've tried a bunch of different threads, and there's 1 brand that just works for my machine better than others. So, be creative. Feel free to try different ones out, and see what works best for you.
