The Glide Thread Color Chart Card is your go-to resource for choosing a Glide thread color. This Glide Thread Color Card has swatches of 250 colors of Glide thread, 20 skinny Glide 60 thread colors, 17 stunning Glisten metallic threads, 18 beautiful variegated polyester Affinity options, and five Luminary glow-in-the-dark colors.

You’ll find the Glide Thread Color Chart especially helpful when ordering thread online. The pictures on you computer or phone screen are not always a true representation of the actual thread. Because the Glide color card has an actual swatch of every thread color, you can shop with confidence that the thread you’re ordering is the color you need!

Simply put, Glide thread is perfection. It is a 40 weight poly that has a slight sheen. It is like a good pair of diamond earrings- it catches the eye without being obnoxious about it. Use it for machine quilting or machine embroidery. It will work equally well doing either or both.

We sell every color and every size of 40 weight Glide thread. You will love how well this poly thread holds tension and how well it moves through your machine.

We have around 240 colors in both the 5000 meter cone and the 1000 meter cone.  Click here to see our combo packs with 4-8 cones of thread.  Or click here if you would like to order individual cones of Glide thread. Looking for a way to keep track of which Glide Thread colors you already own so you aren’t buying duplicate colors?

    Great Idea I love, love, love this thread card. It is so nice to see the actual colors and not have to rely completely on monitor colors. This is well worth the price which itself is very reasonable. I had debated purchasing but I am so glad I did!

    Glide thread chart I really love this chart. I have marked the threads on the chart in my collection and will continue to add to them using Quilting Joy. Their price is absolutely fabulous. The chart is great at helping to keep me organized. By the way, my order was received within 5 days which in this market is terrific. Thank you so much!

    Perfect for Ordering From a Distance This chart is the next best thing to being able to be at Quilted Joy to see all the Glide thread in person! It is such a wonderful tool for picking out the best thread for my projects. Can't imagine not having it!

    Great tool! I use Glide thread almost exclusively when doing long arm quilting, and while I have a good selection of basic colors, I purchased this chart to help with selecting the best colors to add to my collection. I know it will come in handy. Fast shipping and great packaging

    Glide Color Chart I like to order Glide from QJ but can’t always tell online how accurate the color is. This chart includes the actual thread, so I won’t have to guess if it will work, and it allows me to order online from QJ at a great price. Definitely recommend this item.

    Glide thread color chart An absolute must ! All computer screens are different and never show the true color of the thread you need. No more mistakes when matching colors to your quilts. Plus glide thread is the best !!! Love shopping at Quiled Joy.

    Helps so much! When your in a rush to get to the next quilt. . and you need to get that thread, having this chart to run in and grab what you need is such a luxury! Sew nice, plus its pretty!!!!

    A must This color chart is a must have for glide thread lovers. Before I had this, I would look online and hope that I was purchasing the correct color. This chart takes out all of the guess work.

    A MUST have for Glide lovers! A great price for a color card!! The thread is wonderful and having this on hand to put next to your fabrics/projects is a must so you know you are ordering the right color!! Lots of colors and several weights to choose from...

    Glide Color Chart I was excited when the Glide color chart arrived. I was introduced to Glide thread by my local quilt shop, but their color selection is limited. Now I have all the colors at my fingertips. I love Glide thread and my longarm machine loves it. This is the first time I quilted a complete quilt without any thread breakage, NO LINT and no tension problems! I also like that a symbol next to the color on the chart designates if a pre-wound bobbin is available for that color.

    Glide color chart No more ordering from colors as they appear on my monitor or iPhone. Color card is actual Glide thread - you can see the actual color/shade you will receive not to mention the beautiful sheen. Love the Color Chart wish I had ordered one earlier.

    LOVE having a chart I agree with other reviewers that this is very handy to have. And I agree it would be nice to have MORE to be able to lay on fabric - which if it did that would change to 5 stars.

    Glide Color Chart This card has the actual thread as samples rather than a picture which may or may not be color accurate. It shows the beautiful thread available in an artist's pallette of color. I wish more companies would do this.

    This is a phenomenal resource for those who love Glide thread as much as I do. The color chart gives an depiction of the beautiful colors available. It is made of sturdy stock with more information than I expected. I am thoroughly pleased with this purchase. Now I know EXACTLY which colors of Glide I need.
