I am trying to buy some regular thread, basically all the primary colors, a set of some sort. Cause buying the thread one by one is too costly for my blood.

Are there any sites that you all know of where I can buy quality polyester thread for good pricing?

I did a little bit of sewing as a child and have just now regained my interest in it.  I'd really like to make some hand-sewn felt coin pouches for gifts.

I think I should use standard thread (the type you use in a sewing machine) to sew on the details and want to blanket stitch around the edges with something heavier - I'm thinking embroidery thread.  Does that sound about right?

Anyway, I really want to purchase the threads online as I share a car but barely get to use it and it's hard to get to a store during opening hours.  Looking online I've seen quilting stores that sell fine thread and its expensive but can't find anywhere to buy basic (cheap) threads.  Does anyone know a good online store to buy from?  Or... is this a case of I really need to get to a chain fabric store or supermarket for cheap prices? 

I usually wouldn't mind paying more expensive prices but I want to get about 10 colours in both sewing thread and embroidery thread (so I've got a good kit put together) and I can see the cost really adding up - along with wool felt and zippers.

www.longcreekmills.com  They have thread in every color and many fibers.  Great place if you need machine embroidery thread, but they also sell cotton quilting threads on cones.  Great prices.  They also have an incredible selection of stabilizers.  They are really helpful.  It is a factory outlet in Gastonia, NC (really close to MaryJo's).
