The words of the week were:
Spagetti (yes it's spelled that way) which is a 12 weight cotton, a heavier weight thread than usual, so I had to use a topstitch needle and sew a little bit slower. My machine had no problem with it at all. I love the more graphic, impactful look of it and how it sits on top of the fabric instead of blending down into it and disappearing. I also like how it made the zig-zagged edge look. More on this thread in another post...
