EDIT: Here I am back home, and they do have 100% cotton thread in large spools, 1200 yards I believe for $4.94. I bought one. Then came promptly home and ordered my normal thread. Good thing I went too, I needed some toilet paper, LOL
How can one run out of thread? Well I did tonight on the mission of making string blocks. And what makes it worse is that, the only thread that I do have is only suitable for quilting, via hand or machine. So apparently I need to make a midnight trip to Wal-Mart and see what kind of thread I can find. Wish me luck! As I truly hate the big box store!
