General sewing thread is fine, and my preferred thread for seams.
Silk thread is very strong, and if there's stress on a seamline, the fabric is likely to rip before the seam does. Better to have the seam tear, which can be resewn, than the fabric!
I use silk thread for top stitching and basting, but rarely for seaming.
I heart Panzy, Pfaff Creative Performance, the sewing machine love of my life!
And Baby (Enlighten serger), Victor (BLCS), Ash (B350SE-Artwork), Kee (B750QEE-Panzy's BFF), Georgie (B560-Kee's baby sister) and the Feather-Flock!
Most of all, I heart Woo (HimmyCat). Until we meet again, my beautiful little boy. I love you.
