Make & Use Thread Bars and Chains

Threads magazine - 177 - Feb./Mar. 2015

This article from Threads #177 (February/March 2015) is by Threads contributing editor Claire Shaeffer. She writes:

Thread chains are softer than thread bars, but they are less durable. I’ll explain how to make both and where to use them.
