Has any one tried the thread conditioner called "Thread Heaven"? If so does it really work like they say it does? Thanks for any information on this product.

I also use Thread Heaven for hand quilting, sashiko, and hand applique thread.  It does work as advertised, tames the twist, and smoothes stitching.  I have several of those little blue boxes hanging out in sewing room, since they are small and easy of misplace!

Bonnie, I too love Thread Heaven. It is a staple in my hand quilting supplies. I've been using the same little blue box for about 20 years! It never goes bad and is the best thing ever a person could use. I highly recommend it.

I love Thread Heaven! It makes a world of difference to me when doing hand quilting or hand applique. The beeswax is good, too but I much prefer the Thread Heaven.

I was offered beeswax by a local bee keeper and I turned it down! I can see now that was a mistake. I have never used it and didn't know the benefits. Maybe if I run fast I can catch up with her . . .

The thread contitioner I bought is for conditioning thread for hand quilting. You can buy pre conditioned hand quilting thread also.

I use bees wax as well.  I have a bar that is from the Honey Guy http://www.thehoneyguy.com/Beeswax/beeswax.htm  I've been using wax with threads for years it works well and does not leave globs of wax behind on your projects.

Bonnie, I'm not sure what your expectation is, or your intended use, but when I was doing quite a bit of red work, I used Thread Heaven or just a plain old ball of beeswax.  I'd run my thread across it to keep it from twisting and "fuzzing."  I have more experience with the beeswax because it was just handier for me because I didn't need to open and close the little blue box. :)  The beeswax came in a container like this:

I could just run my thread through the slots.  It worked great for my particular needs, but I believe the Thread Heaven does the same thing.
