3000 Yards And Counting!
I haven't kept track of how many pieces I've made, but I do keep track of how many spools of thread I go through. I'm almost done with a 3000 yard cone of thread! I started with this cone in 2007... I've since switched to Gütermann's polyester threads for my main embroidery and reserve the big cone for the "hair" in my work. I'm very happy with the quality of their threads. It doesn't fuzz or fray even when I undo the stitching several times to rework my lines. It's also just thick enough for my purposes... I get really nice clean lines out of it. I've gone through 2 of the Gütermann 250 meter spools within the last year, so I guess it's 3500 yards and counting!
