Welcome to the new home of Glide thread in Australia!


I am very excited to be taking the reins from Lyn to provide quilters and makers with a wonderful product that I myself have been using in longarm quilting for over 5 years. The results speak for themselves and for some Glide eye candy, please look through my gallery of customer, charity and commission quilts that I have been privileged to work on. For me it is an essential tool in my longarm business and a great choice for other makers who enjoy piecing, applique, hand stitching or embroidery.

My initial plan is to provide the same high level of support that Lyn has for over 10 years. The existing selection of threads creates a great choice for makers. My intention is to keep to the established product and service values and continue to supply the threads in the Australian market with a quick turnaround.

I wish you many happy stitches and hope you will continue in your support of these products. Please bear with me through the transition time as I try to fill Lyn’s boots! Feel free to send me your feedback as I continue working my way through this, new to me, venture.

Happy Stitching,
Monika McKinlay

Thank you again for your beautiful quilting. Both quilts look great. I am very, very pleased with them.
And thank you for the tip about how to machine sew labels. I wish I’d known that years ago!
