Re: Japanese stab binding

<< >where do you buy colored linen thread? >>

Weaving supply catalogs (see back of weaving magazines on newsstands) offer
several weights and many colors, and they have weight and color swatches, as
well.

Waxed embroidery thread (cotton or linen) works well. I only use it for
non-archival projects, (i.e. notebooks for class or lecture notetaking). You
can get the beeswax in small squares for about $1 at fabric/craft stores,
such as Cloth World, etc.

Quilt stores carry machine embroidery thread (cotton and linen), and these
can be twisted and waxed also.
