Machine Appliqué
50/2 weight is ideal when a very fine finish is required.  This weight blends beautifully so your fabric is the feature.
Use for a straight stitch, small zig zag , Blind hemming stitch , and Blanket stitch.

Machine Embroidery
Great results every time. Use 50wt in the bobbin as well, or your regular bobbin thread – in which case tighten the top tension a little. Use a Microtex 80/12 needle.

Machine piecing
Gives a nice flat seam every time!

Machine quilting
Use for very detailed machine quilting with a lot of back tracking such as feathers and heavy background quilting . Perfect for quilting that creates texture when you don’t necessarily want to see the quilting lines. Use the same thread in the bobbin and a Sharp/Microtex, quilting or even denim needles 80/12.

Longarm quilting
Perfect for creating texture where you don’t want the thread to be a feature. Backgrounds, stitch in the ditch, basting quilts, whole cloth quilting, micro quilting for dense background designs. Match bobbin thread to top thread.

Hand Piecing
A great weight for hand piecing.

50wt works wonders for both Bobbin lace & Machine lace.
