I’ve noticed lately that quilters are talking about how their thread stashes are starting to compete with their fabric stashes. I’ve noticed my own thread collection growing—I love all the new colors, especially the variegated ones. Fortunately thread doesn’t take up nearly as much space as fabric.
We recently received 12 collections of Coats & Clark’s brand new Dual Duty XP® thread! Each collection box includes 50 spools of polyester-wrapped core-spun thread that has a strength and smoothness that works perfectly for all types of sewing, quilting, and crafting. Another great feature: The new trap spool holds the thread neatly and securely. The color assortment in the pack is amazing – it must have taken someone forever to choose 50 colors out of the 360 total colors included in the Dual Duty XP line – and the collection even includes some multi-colored spools! These collection boxes sell for $65 in stores, so getting to give one away to 12 lucky members of our online community is quite a treat indeed!
Here’s some consumer reviews of the new Dual Duty XP line of thread:
I’ve been meaning to write and tell you how very much I like the new Dual Duty thread and the new spool. The quality of the thread is better than anything I have ever used – sewing machine or by hand.

I just wanted to let you I love the new way you your changed your sewing thread spools. Now all I have to do is to pull the thread and the thread comes out.

Being a professional seamstress for decades, I have been using and recommending the more expensive imported threads. However, recently, the store for which I am the seamstress and which is the largest fabric store on the West Coast, received your new display with all of your new threads. I was asked to give your new threads a try. So I did on some very delicate silk. I was amazed at how buttery your thread traveled through the fabric. I was immediately sold. I congratulate you for your most excellent progress with your Dual Duty All Purpose threads. The colors are wonderful and the texture is superb. I am happy to say that i am your greatest admirer and consequently, so are the customers who come to me for advice.
