Remember back in October when I put the new cone of Superior Masterpiece thread on the machine and readers guessed when the thread would run out? The cone was dated and put on the machine on October 4. This morning I came downstairs very early to sew and began winding bobbins and before the first bobbin was full, the thread ran out.
Yes, I could have dusted before taking the photo but I didn’t! At least I now know where my stitch markers are! If I had been guessing how long a cone of thread would last, I would have thought two months but it lasted more than 4-1/2 months. I’m surprised! During the past 4-1/2 months, I’ve done a bit more quilting on the longarm, using different thread, than I probably usually do but during the past 4-1/2 months, I’ve not been gardening or canning so I’ve been doing more sewing than I do in the summer months and I suppose it all averages out. I’ve dated the new cone and will see how long it lasts.
This helps me know how much thread to keep on hand.
This could be two years worth of thread and without knowing how long it lasts, I would have thought this would barely be enough for a year! I usually stock up when I see the Superior Thread people at Kansas City in May but this year, I won’t need to buy MasterPiece.
