We all know what thread is. We all love it. We all need it. Share your thoughts on thread. The history of thread. The life of thread. The thread of thread.

Since it was first processed in China, silk thread has been used in embroidery for more than 5,000 years. Silk is an animal fiber made from the viscous fluid of the silkworm. Originally, silkworm cocoons were collected from trees. In 2640 B.C., a Chinese Empress discovered that if a silk cocoon was placed in hot water to soften the natural glue or sericin (holds the cocoon together), then a silk cocoon could be unwound and stretched into a long filament. Fo Xi, China's first Emperor, taught the Chinese people to cultivate mulberry trees and raise silkworms. The first variety of silkworm to be domesticated was the Bombyx Mori. Over the centuries, at least thirteen other species have been cultivated. In addition, there are more than 80 varieties of wild silkworms.

I would tell you a yarn about thread, but I don't have the time right now. It's a pretty thimble tale, really. Maybe I'll tell it later. It's about a stitch in time.

In the latest episode of As the Spool Unwinds, patient Spangles N. Beads, secret lover of Doctor Sing R. Bobbin, is undergoing emergency surgery.


Doctor Bobbin: Nurse, her pulse is thready. But her hair is like silken threads on the pillow. I think we need to use a crosstitch here.

Nurse: I was just doing an acrostic, and you've interrupted me.

Doctor: Maybe a zigzag backstitch.

Nurse: Sew, well, here's some catgut. I also have Silly String. And this yarn is just lovely.

Doctor: I think she'd like that shade of orange you have there.

Nurse: Oh? And how would you know that?

Doctor: Merely the embroidery of my imagination, my dear.
