Video: Which embroidery floss is best?

Hi stitchers!


I've been wanting to do this video for a long time now - I've seen so many people in groups talk about which threads they use and what they like best, and I thought it would be fun to do a test and see which Rhona liked best... but without telling her the brands of the threads!


In this video, I have chosen 5 different threads for Rhona to stitch with and compare - Anchor, DMC, Sulky, Paxcoo, and CXC. (For reference, Rhona usually stitches with DMC, and I tend to use Paxcoo a lot for my small projects). She has to guess which thread is which brand without seeing the labels.


So let us know - what threads do you usually use? Do you like a particular thread more than other threads? Were you surprised by which thread Rhona liked best, or by any of her guesses?


We hope you enjoy watching the video! (Note: A few of you have let us know that we were a little hard to hear in our first YouTube video, which can be found here. Going forward, we'll work to address the volume issues... or I'll have to make Rhona project her voice more ;) Thanks for sticking with us as we figure out how best to film!).


Happy stitching!
