What thread do you use for applique? I have always used silk thread for my applique -- usually Kinkame (sp) or YLI. I recently took an applique class with Robyn Pandolph and she recommends Gutterman Silk thread. She suggested when cutting off a length of thread, you should hold both ends and gently "pop" it to prevent twisting. This is something I've not done before, but seems to help. Robyn also stated she uses Thread Haven to condition the thread; this is something that I do.
I have tried the Gutterman silk and it seems to not fray as much as the Kinkame or YLI thread. It is a heavier thread, but with the right color match it looks nice.
I am curious about what thread others use for applique. Any comments??
