I bought this thread, along with some cheap coloured threads, and some needles (not being a sewer and having none in my house for almost 4 years lol). I wanted to alter a red dress I'd bought, but couldn't get into the cheap, red thread, so I decided to try the invisible thread. It was a little tricky to thread the needle, but after that, I couldn't even see my terrible stitches, and the thread is really strong. There is no need to buy any other colour of thread again.......one reel will do! You won't see any stitches, so you don't have to be that careful when sewing. No more hunting for the right colour of thread. I'm constantly amazed at the things I find on this site.
