:> Blue Jean trimming thread.....
:> What and where can I find the thicker threads for use on blue jeans trim?
:> Need yesterday.....TIA
:You can substitute a couple of thicknesses of regular sewing machine thread for topstitching or
:If you want to be official about it, there are some jeans threads around; I've seen them at our
:larger fabric stores, but not at Joann, though Gutermann topstitch thread might be a good substitute.
:If you're like me and far away from a good sewing store, Wawak carries jeans threads in several
(the heavier thread is Tex 80). :(ordinary sewing thread is about Tex 30)
Tex 80 is unlikely to owrk in most domestic machines. It might work in some
old straight stitch machines. Tex 70 (#69, in numeric size) is about
as big as will work in most home machines (some might have problems
with it.). I got some lighter weighter stuff from them, but I can't
find it right now.
Most jeans are stitched with cotton covered polyester thread. The
cotton fades more than all poly or poly covered poly threads will.
Keep that it mind, too.
:For what it's worth, I live in Oregon, and I ordered late Monday night and got my order today, Wednesday.
Wawak/cleaner's supply (they're the same place; same prices,
different sales) ships from upstate NY and NV. I think there's a
transit time map on the website (there are in the catalogs).
