Last year I bought a (quite expensive) bobbin case to deal with thick, fancy threads for bobbin work. (For anyone unfamiliar with this it means that the speciality thread is wound onto the bobbin and you turn your work over and sew from the back.)
The bobbin case is designed so that you can adjust tension discs or bypass them altogether if the thread is very thick.
The time has finally come to give it a test run. I handwound this thread onto the bobbin and stitched onto some fabric paper.
Initial results are very promising.
(This is a hasty post before I head off for a few days with family. I'm hoping to get to the "Stitched Up Festival' in Wangaratta, Vic as well - be back home Monday.)
