    Hi! I LOVE EPP! I use tiny thread - Masterpiece #50/2-ply from Superior Threads. Hand quilting thread is just too thick for me. I also use a teeny needle to go with - Clover applique sharps #9. These are what I use for applique, and when I took up EPP I just used those too, and they've worked out great. The small thread makes a nearly invisible seam. and the small needles go through really easily. They're almost impossible to thread by hand (for me, anyway) so I use a clover or bohin desktop needle threader.

    Happy to hear from someone who loves EPP, too! Post some pics - I'd love to see what you're making! And - everything is "OK"! Just do what works for you!
