Have you had a problem with metallic and speciality threads breaking? After years of frustration and stress using metallic and specialty thread in her projects, Lee Fletcher decided to do something about it!

She invented the Thread Director! Did you know that thread should unwind off the spool the same way it was wound onto the spool? The Thread Director solves the problem of twisting and breakage while making it easy and fun to work with specialty threads. Like most great inventions, the Thread Director was borne out of necessity, and like most great inventions, you’ll wonmder how you ever managed without it!

CaptureThe Thread Director changes the position of the spool allowing the thread to unwind flat, eliminating twisting, which causes the thread to break. Now you can easily use metallic and specialty threads, giving your projects some extra sparkle and pop! The Thread Director works on most sewing machines and overlockers, and can be used with almost any thread, and will hold spools of up to 1000m.
