Alice in Wonderland was written by Lewis Carroll in 1865. A story does not endure for 155 years without capturing the imagination of generations. It is the story of a world turned on its head. It begs us to question everything we know, throw away our assumptions, and succumb to nonsense. Wonderland captures the most essential nature of what Tula wants her fabric to be and why she quilts… escapism. When the weight of the world is too much, she turns to needle and thread. Curiouser and Curiouser focuses on some of the most memorable themes and characters from the story. The coordinating thread collection boasts 20 fantastical hues, perfect for reimagining everything we know and love about one of the world’s most classic stories.

Hand Appliqué

Ideal for all types of hand applique. 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. Match bobbin thread.

NOTE: Please contact us if you wish to purchase 5 or more spools, a discount may be available.
