Introducing Gütermann thread boxes – Great for multi-colored projects

I recently received this Gütermann Nostalgia Box of 50wt Cotton Thread. There are 48 different spools, each with 100m of cotton thread in the attractive storage tin. These natural fiber threads are perfect for piecing as well as for decorative seams and embellishments. This is just one of a series of Gütermann thread boxes. They come in a variety of thread weights in both cotton and Sew-all polyester. This is the perfect way to make multi-colored projects and never run out of thread!

The 1895 Gütermann 1895 Nostalgia Box contains 48 spools of Sew-all polyester thread in a variety of colors and the Gütermann 1930 Nostalgia Box contains 30 spools of Sew-all polyester thread. These thread operates well in high-performance machines due to its tensile strength and elasticity and can handle the demands of any stitch type. Not only is it great for regular sewing, but due to its beautiful finish, these threads can be put to good use for ornamental and decorative seams, and even thread painting.

This week, I’m using the Gütermann Nostalgia Box of 50wt Cotton Thread to make this small wall quilt or table topper just in time for spring, as well as using a fabric panel to showcase the threads.

These boxes of threads are scrumptious. Better than a box of chocolates. :-D

I agree!

It seems to me that the color of the spool itself must mean something, but I can't find anything that gives and explanation or shows a chart, e.g., cotton thread 50 wt on light orange, 100% cotton quilting on a dark beige spool, etc. Maybe the size of the spool has something to do with the color?

Hi Susan. The spools are all the same size, but the color number is on the label at the top of each spool.
