Hey, last night I made a pair of earrings, RAW (yeah me!) and I used some new thread I had purchased - KO Thread.  Some of the major bead weavers in our Bead Society highly recommend this type thread so I thought I would buy me a few spools and give it a try. Guess what I REALLY liked the way it worked with my beads! and I am a big user of Fireline. Now, mind you, this was a small project (though it was an advanced pattern) and I don't know how I would like it in a bigger project.  Guess I will have to wait and see.  Anyone else like the KO Thread.

haven't used it. love the sono from fmg, hate nymo, like fireline, like wildfire for stiffer stuff, and sometimes wire.

I bought a spool of One G on someone's recommendation and still have not used it. I look at that tiny spool (actually a bobbin) and just marvel at the price I paid.........and there it sits, like an elephant in the room. I must admit I go through a lot of Fireline as I only buy the 300 yard spools, and the big spools of Nymo when I look at the dinky bobbin of One G, I guess I am intimidated. What if I get half way through the project and decide I need to make a drastic change? Then I am cutting up a lot of expensive thread..............LOL. Can you believe I am so paralyzed about this thread? Maybe I'll just grit my teeth and buy a bobbin of KO and one of Sono and treat them as an experiment and use them all like for individual components of a larger piece. Nervous Nelly Donna.
