For Beautiful and Strong Seams



"I first started using Gütermann when I learned to quilt because it didn't break in my inexpensive machine. Today I continue to use it in my professional quilting because I know the quality is amazing and the softness of the cotton thread gives me an even stitch that allows the beauty of my character quilts to shine."
