I sew for my porcelain dolls and want to use my new embroidery machine to embellish fabric for edgings, small motifs, etc. Regular sewing thread is too coarse, I have tried the usual polyester and rayon threads, but wonder if there is something that works well to create a more traditional heirloom effect that is fine. I have read about DMC 50 weight, but so far I can't find it anywhere. Any advice?

i just googled "DMC 50 weight thread" (since i have no idea what that is) and found some place that you can buy it from:

and

http://www.sharmanssewingcenter.com/products/DMC-Machine-Embroidery-50wt.-Thread-547yd-Spool-100%25-Cotton.html

you can go to the library, there's prolly a lot of helpful tips for making embellishments that look appropriate for your purpose.

good luck, and show the things you make to us too! <3
