So this is what 5km of thread looks like !

This is going to be a really short entry !

sewing machine big reel

As any regular sewer will tell you, decent thread is expensive and 500 metres will cost in the £6  region and doesn't last a long time. Opt for cheap thread and you will soon be cursing with your thread breaking every few minutes, necessitating stopping and rethreading the lot.

So, I wondered whether a 5000 metre, i.e. 5km of thread on a big reel would do the job. as it works out much cheaper. I wasn't quite aware it would be THIS big though. I am pleased to say it does the job rather well, despite looking a little bit akward !
