From needle turning to using prepared shapes, the 50wt is thin and with all the colors available you can match your shape perfectly. Hand Piecing A great weight for hand piecing. Lace 50wt is a wonder for both Bobbin lace & Machine lace. Machine Appliqué Ideal when a very fine finish is desired. This weight disappears so your fabric is the feature. Use for a straight stitch, small zig zag , Blind hemming stitch , and Blanket stitch. Machine Embroidery Great results every time. Use 50wt in the bobbin as well, or your regular bobbin thread – in which case tighten the top tension a little. Use a Microtex 80/12 needle. Machine piecing Gives a great result with a nice flat seam every time. Machine quilting Use for very detailed machine quilting with a lot of back tracking such as feathers and heavy background quilting . Perfect for quilting that creates texture when you don’t necessarily want to see the quilting lines. Use the same thread in the bobbin and a Sharp/Microtex, quilting or even denim needles 80/12. Longarm quilting Perfect for creating texture where you don’t want the thread to be a feature. Backgrounds, stitch in the ditch, basting quilts, whole cloth quilting, micro quilting for dense background designs.
