HtbaS – Episode 79

I talk about dipping thread, applique the Sharon Schamber way, and the commission baby quilt. My kids are so generous with the Mother’s Day presents that they gave me a cold.

  • Cindy’s new Fluffy Sheep Quilting shop opens on May 14th! Enter the giveaway on her blog on Monday!
  • Dip your thread in mineral oil. Sounds squicky, but it’s okay. I promise.
  • To learn more about Sharon Schamber’s applique method, check out her book Piece by Piece.

  1. I am going to give the mineral oil a try on my cotton thread. And Aurafil is 100% cotton. Do you know if the dipping could be used on silk, or a synthetic thread?
    Great overview of the applique too. Thanks

    1. Hi Victoria – Sharon has said that the dipping will work well for any thread type – polyester, cotton, silk, rayon, etc.

  2. Not sure I’m up to thread-dipping, but it was soothing as I watched the red lights in front of me this AM.

    All the best

  3. Hi Pam, thank you for the awesome podcast! I’ll try the mineral oil dipping, I have some really old thread on wooden spools that I got from my friend (probably picked it up at a flee market for pennies) and will let you know how it goes πŸ™‚ If it doesn’t work I won’t feel sorry losing the unused thread πŸ™‚ I love to listen to your podcasts and looking forward to download them every Friday! Thank you for being so wonderful! πŸ™‚
