Turquoise Pearl

Turquoise Peal

    I found a few spools of, that old, crochet thread on E-Bay.  It had a Ben Franklin on the price sticker.  Have to ask my parents to check it out, when they go up north.  For those who are going to give this thread a try, it is not that easy to work with.  You need to tat a little looser and it won't work for needle tatters.  Metallic sewing thread is smoother to work with.  I do like this thread, I like the thicker look.  The lot of thread had both gold and silver spools.  I liked the Egyptian Collection so much, I had to make a pendant in silver.

  4. I am looking to tat a cross in gold metallic thread. You said that this thread was not the best to use for tatting. Have you found a thread that you like other than the sewing metallic thread?

    1. The thread I used for his, the rins don't close well. Three strands of sewing thread should give you a decent size cross. I like the sewing because it is very smooth.
