I make coasters (#10 crochet thread) and want to seal them so they can be used without the thread becoming soiled.  Any  suggestions?

HHmmmm, yeah. Resin would work. A two part product poured on just enough to soak into the threads. Also, a water repellent spray like Scotch Guard could work. It would repel water and soil without making the coasters stiff. There are several products like Scotch Guard, one is called Camp Dry. Look in the camping section of your local store.
