Sample! Sample! Sample!
I had picked out the threads to use for my table runner, and guess what? Didn't work. (These are the reasons we sample!!)
I found that the pattern weft I had picked out was to thin. It was a 10/2 cotton. I have replaced it with 5/2 cotton 'near' the same color. I think this will give me the weight of cloth I am after. After all, you don't want a table runner to slide off your table during a light breeze.
