I'm curious as to specifically what preferences any of you milliners have for types and strengths of thread for various tasks during the construction of your hats.

I've tried general purpose thread, upholstery thread and button thread. The general purpose tends to break too easily for me, and the upholstery thread tends to get knotted up in the wire and buckram too easily even when I coat it with wax.

I'd like to hear what successes or problems the rest of you have with various threads for construction and/or embellishment.

Love Lucello and love vintage!  I was in Melbourne in May doing a workshop with Louise Macdonald - we all spent so much time in this shop and I spent so much money!  all worth it though :)
