By daylight, DECORA embroideries are immediately eye-catching, as the interplay of light and shadow transfers to the colors, transforming your design into a living artwork. Try the new multicolor shades and marvel at the stunning variety of embroidery possibilities. The effect comes automatically from the spiral package, without any need for changing the color. Any project designed for stranded cotton can be stitched with DECORA, thus producing a distinctive and unique masterpiece.
Machine Embroidery Instructions: The Overlock Inspiration threads are not guided through the machine needle, but instead handled with the loopers of the overlock and coverlock machines, or from the reel in the case of sewing machines. For coverlock and machine decorative seams, the material is always embroidered from the left, as the machine produces the seam on the underside. Hint: For quilting & sewing, decorative seams & appliqué, fabulous effects can be achieved if you combine this thread with COTONA No. 30 or No. 50  threads. Or marvel at the unique look if multicolor are machined together with the matching plain color. COTONA and DECORA are also tremendous hand embroidery threads.

    I teach an advanced machine embroidery class and love to find out about slightly more unusual threads that students are often uncertain how to use.
    Yael in Israel introduced me to Decora 12 and I have recently used these threads extensively for a piece I am about to enter into the Quilt Creations category for Festival of Quilts in the UK.
    I found the thread so easy to use. I didnt even have to adjust the tension. The secret is to use a top stitch needle and a bobbinfil weight of thread underneath. I like the match the colour, but do not need to be too exact. I also always use a top stitch needle. The colours of the Decora are just gorgeous, it just shines!
    I can’t show any pictures of my piece yet until the show.
    Now I just want one of every colour and use it on another quilt
