Do you know if this is the old 2-ply that they're closing out. I wasn't able to tell.

Yes I think so that's why I was interested. I think it will be like Aurifil as the is two ply as well. I'm really not sure though.

I clicked on one of the pictures of a spool which enlarged it enough to see that it is 50/2.

Honestly, I have both 2 and 3 ply spools of Masterpiece and though I can see a very very slight difference... as far as accuracy in my quilts - it hasn't made a single difference. In my humble opinion, it is much to do about nothing regarding these two threads. Just sayin'!

QW, thanks for the link... fabulous prices. I love those mini spools of silk thread! And Superior Threads Donuts for $30 - Best price anywhere!

Another great find, QW! You find such cool stuff. All my Masterpiece is the older 2 ply, never had any breakage or trouble. They say they went to 3 ply due to breakage in "tightly-tensioned" machines or some such.

Fwiw, Connecting Threads used to have the Frosted Donut collections for less than $30, I don't remember exactly how much. Love those.

Btw, QW, you've got me hooked on MSQC now.

I know I'm being dense but MSQC ?

I might get some Masterpiece next week when I get paid. That price is just too good. By the yard that stuff is more expensive the Aurifil. And 600 yards is a decent size spool.

And here I thought you were talking about PBS. If I wasn't on a thread/zipper/elastic/interfacing/yadda yadda fast, I'd buy some. It looks like beautiful thread. (notice I didn't say ''fabric'')

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.
