Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

Can anyone tell me about this thread? We sell it where I work (and it's on sale) but nobody knows any information about it: what it's good for, any special abilities, etc. Thanks

Thanks so much Adva. That's what I needed to know. I guess it's just their brand name for that thread. When I followed that to brands and threads it's the only kind they showed. Doesn't mention any special powers it has, hehe. Guess it pays to ask.

No, it's name is Fusion by Singer. Thanks everyone for telling me what you know. People at work ask me questions about it and I didn't have a clue what to tell them. Nobody knew anything. I even tried googleing it. We just wondered if the name meant anything special. I really appreciate it,,,thanks again.

Do you mean 'Fusible Thread'? I have a friend who does long arm quilting and binding for customers. She attaches the binding first with a fusible thread, then irons the binding to the other side, then does the finishing stitch by machine.
Here's some info about it:

I bought some to try out.It's not a wash out thread. I love it so far. I'm using it on my sewing machine just like all the other threads. It's 30% cotton and 70% poly. I went back and got some other colors. it hasn't given me any trouble. And I've even done some top-stitching through about 4 layers and it sewed a beautiful stitch.

So, you mean that the fusion thread washes away?

This thread is wonderful for using in Trapunto sewing. You rought sew the design with batting behind the fabric, then cut the excess batting away. When you are ready to complete the item, you sew with regular thread with detail. The washaway thread dissolves and the design is outstanding.
