This sewing tube by Suffolk contains waxed, 100% nylon thread, two sewing needles, and a self-contained stainless cutter. Cutter made to not dull, allowing for a clean cut with each use. A dance bag must-have!
I find that this product holds up really well. Obviously how well you sew it can also affect the durability but I find it holds up better than average. I would double up on the thread but it stays pretty well. It also blends with most pointe shoe colors and is less obvious. If you were a fan of the original stitch kit thread, not the new one, this should hold up pretty well. I kind of like this one a tad bit better, but it's all based on individual experience. I would say it's worth trying out. A tip though if you have an important performance, just use non flavored dental floss.
I really love the sewing tube. The thread is strong and not too thick making it easier to sew. I also love the color of the thread because sometimes other brands' thread gets too orangy. The fact that it has a cutter on the top that actually works is awesome because I don't have to carry scissors around. My favorite part is that it is compact, doesn't take up too much space and doesn't get crushed in my dance bag.
