Fabric Depot is having a 50% off sale on Gutermann thread today and Saturday. Since that's the thread I use, I'm headed out to get some (as soon as the boyfriend changes out of his PJs).
I'm looking for giant cones of thread (3000m) because they're the most economical and there's just a few colors that I use over and over for my piecing (and a good chunk of my quilting). White, off-white, grey, and black. Giant cones cost around $23, which means $12 for 3000m once it's 50% off. I'm excited.
I did, however, have to construct a giant cone holder.
The thread is sitting on top of an old degu toy that they chewed all the other parts off of (I washed it well with vinegar before putting my thread on it). Yes, that is a wire coathanger duct taped to the back of my sewing machine.. but I needed something to hold the thread up above the machine so it wouldn't get tangled.
