  • Thanks for the great episode! I wish I’ve seen this episode 4 years ago. ’cause as a programmer I’ve been using threads (which allows program to do several things at the same time) and of course mispronounced it for almost one year 🙂 Anyway I’m sure it will help other guys not to repeat my mistake 🙂
    PS.: Have a great time during your vacation and looking forward for new episode 🙂

  • Thanks for this episode. It had much more information than i expected. What i originally had in mind was the thread of a screw. Now i know that it is also a cloth. Have a nice vacation,1000thx

  • Thanks guys. I’ll tell you how it was when I get back.

  • Hi Sebastian, We are really enjoying your podcasts, they are very helpful for my students in Italy.
    Just one comment – “thread” is not a piece of cloth, but is instead is a spun fiber. Knitwear is made with yarn, not thread. Sorry to be such a stickler, but I teach fashion design and these things are important for us.

    Hope you enjoy the wedding! Maseltof!!!

  • @Carolyn: thanks for the clarification, I’ll address it for sure.

  • Excellent Podcast !
