ShanŽ Rainbow Colour Sewing Thread Sets with Gift &hellip by Shan
Looking at the other reviews, I guess I am the only person that have a problem with the thread. I actually received the colours in the picture, but the thread is so thin, I have been unable to use it as both a top and bottom thread, regardless of fabric, needle or machine thread tension. I can just get away with it if I use it as a top thread with good old Gutermanns thread in my bottom spool.

And I don't think it's me as I've tried it on viscose as well as wool fabric/garments.

I can't even use it as hand stitching thread as the thread is so thin and silky my fingers struggle to hold it.

Such a pity as they look so pretty!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Cranford, 4 April 2014
Upstairs Downstairs is OK, but not nearly as good as Cranford. The characters (especially the younger sister) is super annoying, and the servants, well... I just don't think things happened quite that way.

Also, how do they look after that huge house with only a handful of servants?
3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job but the cap is very smooth, 4 April 2014
This grinder certainly grinds my coffee beans perfectly, but the cap is so smooth with no grip anywhere that very often I struggle to open or close it, and I have dropped it a few times as well.

They really just need to add some rubber grips to the cap and this would be a 5star product.
