Size 8 Perle Cotton Thread by Wonderfil: Suespargo.com or TwinCitiesQuilting.com
• We loved the Hummingbird color in class (purple green variegated) and Gossip Girl (pink, orange, lime variegated).
Metallic Threads by Kreinik. I like the #4 Very Fine Braid, which is similar to perle cotton. They do sell directly to the public but it’s much easier to get it from an Etsy seller or local shop. I order from this shop and they are always very nice and speedy to ship:RoseCottageCrafts3
