COT SHOTTONS

My Shot Cotton choices for my new workshop

What is a shot cotton? 

Kaffe’s  shot cotton fabric collection has a two tone effect by using two different colors for the warp and weft fibers, which give the fabric added dimension and a slight iridescent effect. The fabric is perfect for quilts, home decor and craft projects.

Here’s an example of a periwinkle blue woven cotton thread with a raspberry-like cotton thread.

AURIFIL Monofilament Invisible Thread

Aurifil’s Monofilament Invisible Thread Made in Italy, is made of nylon and available in two colors: smoke (for dark fabrics) and clear (for light fabrics).

It is the perfect choice, whenever the thread or the stitching line should camouflage or needs to be absolutely invisible. Designed to be used when the choice of the right thread color becomes challenging, Aurifil’s Monofilament Invisible Thread can be used as a top thread for many quilting applications such as stitch-in-the-ditch, invisible machine applique, outlining, shaping and echoing applique and of course free motion quilting.

Art Quilters will love the camouflage effect, when couching becomes important. The smoothness of the thread also allows its use in needle turn applique or when joining the parts of open seams, that need to be hand stitched to close.

While in many occasions you may want to stay “invisible” with your top thread, the back of your project may not necessitate an invisible thread. Choose a matching color among one of our numerous Aurifil 100% cotton threads – a 50wt is perfect to use as a bobbin thread – and you will see perfect stitch quality on top and on the back of your project. Top tension should be lowered to at least 2,0 on a home sewing machine and as necessary on a long arm. A slightly larger stitch will also guarantee an excellent result.

Although not recommended in the bobbin for best results, invisible thread can be used in the bobbin with some recommendations. The bobbin should be filled at the slowest speed possible and not completely. In case the winding speed cannot be reduced on the machine, the tension of the thread path should be reduced as much as possible when winding, as the invisible thread tends to stretch a bit and will be wound too tight otherwise. Considering a second bobbin case may be a good choice, as the bobbin tension will need to be adapted as well. The original bobbin case can be kept for normal threads and the bobbin tension does not have to be readjusted.

St. Gregory, born in Rome about the year 540, was the son of Gordianus, a wealthy senator. He later renounced the world and became one of the seven deacons of Rome. After he had acquired the usual thorough education, Emperor Justin the Younger appointed him, in 574, Chief Magistrate of Rome, though he was only thirty-four years of age. After the death of his father, he built six monasteries in Sicily and founded a seventh in his own house in Rome, which became the Benedictine Monastery of Saint Andrew. Here, he himself assumed the monastic habit in 575, at the age of thirty-five. After the death of Pelagius, Saint Gregory was chosen Pope by the unanimous consent of priests and people. Now began those labors which merited for him the title of Great. His zeal extended over the entire known world, he was in contact with all the Church of Christendom and, in spite of his bodily sufferings and innumerable labors, he found time to compose a great number of works. He is known above all for his magnificent contributions to the Liturgy of the Mass and Office.  He is one of the four great Doctors of the Latin Church.  He died March 12, 604.  He is the patron of teachers, and choir singers.

AND THEN . . .

…there is groovy St. Greg, the grooviest brother a girl could ever have!

    Good evening Mark, missed the show this morning, had my 2 year old grand baby overnight and we were playing Barbies. Just read thru the highlights of the discussions. I can only imagine the fun and shenanigans that must have ensued over the lifting drawers! I laughed out loud when I saw the picture. You and Jeff have a good week. Mona

    I love to hear your happy laugh….today’s show was a great one. Thanks so much for (you and Jeff) sharing your time, tips and treasurers with everyone. It sounded to me like you’re in for a yellow and white challenge…hummm…that sounds like a wonderful project..and with a whole lot of little pieces. My wheels are spinning on this one…maybe set a goal to have it finished by next spring when the daffodils bloom….speaking of yellow – I love the idea of your Angel Book – lovely message to reach out to each other and give a caring pat and hug of verbal care. You have a compassionate heart! Do you still have some of that yellow fabric that is in your Angel Book cover???? You know for that yellow and white quilt….Oh – if you need a teacher’s aide for your Warwick workshop – I volunteer! Again – love the security of your laughter! Take Good Care Buddy! P.S. I was over on Pickle Road today…Bonk went the horn! 🙂

    Thanks for a good day of “nothing to say”–ha! The yellow is quite wonderful and so very tempting just when I am trying to use up what I have (of course I don’t have any yellow) and am trying to focus on organic fabric. How about giving a plug or two to the organic manufacturers? Of course I will slip off now and then and buy non-organic fabric, but the organic folks don’t get the exposure they should.
