  •   Star Thread by Coats and Clark
Judy’s just back from exhibiting at the American Quilters Society (AQS) Show in Lancaster, and while there had a conversation with Terry White, author of Thread Painting Made Easy. Terry says her students are always asking where they can buy Star Thread by Coats and Clark. Wonder no more! Artistic Artifacts has long carried this superior product at a value price — $10.95 for a 1,200 yard spool. This 100% Premium extra long staple (ELS) Egyptian cotton thread is mercerized for strength and luster and offers excellent stitch definition.
