Use nylon thread for sewing almost anything that requires strength and durability. It is strong, easy to use, and a great choice for sewing fabric, leather, canvas, and vinyl. We sell nylon thread in eleven thickness sizes that range from hair-thin to cord-like. There are small two and four ounce spools for home sewers, larger spools and half-price wholesale cases for commercial customers, and "Thread Boxes" for adventurous stash-builders.
Use Guide--This guide is an alphabetical list of things sewn with nylon thread and the range of sizes they use. Work backwards from the material that you are sewing to the thread size that you need. Remember, thread size usually increases with material thickness, polyester thread is a better choice for items exposed to the elements for long periods of time, and that your sewing machine's capabilities may limit your choices.
