If you love Glide thread, you’ll also love the Glide variegated thread called Affinity! Affinity Thread Patriot is a beautiful 40 weight 3-ply trilobal polyester thread. It’s one-inch color-repeats are the perfect touch for when you want to add a little extra pizzaz. Customers rely on the optimum strength of Affinity in fast-pace production environments. Stronger thread translates into fewer thread breaks and less machine downtime.
Affinity is washable, color-fast, and provides superior resistance to abrasion and chemicals. A trustworthy thread you can rely on over the years when longevity matters.
I like to say that it is like a good pair of diamond earrings- it catches the light without being obnoxious about it. The tone on tone variations are wonderful as a background filler where you want to add a little visual interest without overwhelming the eye. Affinity Thread Patriot is made by Fil-Tec and is the same high quality as my favorite thread, Glide.
Due to the differences in computer monitors and printers, the color displayed above may vary slightly from the actual product. We always recommend comparing colors using your Glide Color Card.

Affinity thread This is my third color now that I have used of this thread, and love it! Color changes constantly. Also has a sheen to it that makes it glisten! Just love it! This color was used on a Red, White and Blue quilt going to a first responder to Hurricane Harvey. Will be doing on for Hurricane Irma responder also.
