    I know most people (including me) use the Sulky thread that they have at some Wal-Mart store, Joanne's, Hancock, etc. It is on little long tube spools, not the regular thick spools. You can get it in TONS of colors and even stuff like glow in the dark and metallic/holographic threads that are like foil.

        Check out the Gudebrod threads used for "tying" fishing rods. It is not super expensive and I have been able to find it at Academy. There is a thread they make that does not require the use of a preservative (to keep the thread color from fading), but I don't know if it would be that big of a deal if used on a fan.

            I have used rayon thread made by coats and clark. You can find it at JoAnn Fabric, it runs....$3 - $4 a spool for 200 yards of the 40 weight. Like TCUMonster said Godebrod thread is another one that is used quiet a bit. If I remember right spools of that run $2 - $4 a spool for the 100 yard spools of size D.

            If you are like me, I buy a few at a time, getting the most popular colors first, then adding to the collection over time

              Yup, go to your local sporting goods store, such as "Sportman's Warehouse" and shop in their fly-fishing dept. They have hundreds of types and colors to choose from.

                Yeah I'd suggest fly tying thread. You can get it at a sporting goods store or on ebay!

                  Best beading thread
                  by muskrat_skull
                  I've made non-traditional jewelry for a while now and am wanting to get into beading. I got some delicas and beading needles at Walmart (this is the only store that has this stuff nearby). I've used monofilament and plain old regular polyester/cotton thread before, and worked some with waxed...

                  question for moderators-how to close a thread?
                  by mathewhebailey08
                  I just recently posted a new thread & no one is replying. Does anyone know how to close a thread or do the moderators or owner have to do it themselves?

                  Questions about using beeswax
                  by Mezzobean
                  I've assumed that one threads a needle then runs the needle and length of thread through the beeswax, but is that all there is to it?

                  Also, I've read that one should coat nymo with beeswax as well as cotton thread. Is that what you experienced beaders do?

                  Thanks for your...

                  To Wax or not To Wax
                  by ndngirl70
                  How many of you wax your thread when you're beading? My mother swears by it but I never do it. Do you think that beadwork lasts longer with waxed thread?
