Thread Conditioning

Most of us don't bother to condition our threads but if you ever considered it or are just plain curious, Mary Corbet has written a nice long article that considers what thread conditioners like Thread Heaven and beeswax are supposed to do and how well they hold up over time.  I found it very interesting!

Mary definitely is against using them except for goldwork, attaching buttons to clothing and by inference, adding beads to needlework.  It would be interesting to hear an opposing point of view.
