Invisible Thread Tips

June 5, 2009 in General, Tips & Tricks

Invisible Thread is sometimes needed for your project, but can be tricky to work with. Here are some helpful tips when working with this unique product:

invisible-threadРAt most, slowly wind the bobbin  half-full and with less tension than normal.

– For a good stitch quality, tightening your bobbin tension may be needed.

– For using it in your needle, set your tension to the lowest setting, then gradually increase it until you get a good stitch quality.

– If your thread out of the needle is curling, the tension is too tight (and your thread will break).

  1. Hard as it may be to work with, would it be possible to do an entire T Shirt Quilt with invisible thread?
    I am looking into making the quilt from our son’s military t shirst on one side but plain white backing on the other. So I only want the design to show up in a shadow like depth on the back and front with no thread taking away from the front t shirt designs.

    • Hi Diane. This sounds like it will be a great keepsake. You can certainly use invisible thread to quilt this t-shirt quilt. However, do a test first. Make a quilt sandwich using the part of the t-shirt not used in the quilt along with the batting and backing. You may need to weaken your top tension. If you are not going to use free motion quilting you may also want to lengthen your stitch just a bit. I hope this is helpful. Good luck with your quilt, send us a picture when you get it finished, I would love to see it.
