Today starts the new series Terrific Tool Thursdays! I am excited to share some of my favorite tools with you! When I decided to start this series, the very first tool that I thought of is this thread cutter! It is so useful! It seems really simple, but trust me, it saves a lot of time. My friend Jamie Mueller of Sunflower Quilts gave it to me at Quilt Market in Fall 2014 and I am embarrassed about how long I had it before I started using it. But once I did, I never looked back!
Basically, it easily cuts thread as you chain piece. I keep it right next to my machine and would never consider going on a sewing retreat without it! Jamie sells them on her site here. (I get nothing if you buy one from her.) There are other versions, but I’ve not seen one as sturdy as this one.
