Excel template for calculating sewing thread consumption. Easy to use.

An excel template is very useful for the formula based calculations. So the thread consumption calculation template is.

You might know the thread consumption ratios for different machines.

But if you don’t have a template, you are wasting time in estimating sewing thread requirement calculation.

Don’t know how to make the template?

No problem. I have developed one template on excel for you.

Remember, different thread consumption ratios are developed by thread manufacturers (those factors are developed based on different fabric thickness and stitch per inch). In the first article I wrote on thread consumption formula How to calculate thread consumption for garments, I have explained how to develop your own thread-consumption-factors for different types of stitches.

In this template I have given you options to choose one from the various sources of thread consumption factors. Choose one from the following
1. Coats
2. A&F-1
3. A&F-2
4. Ratio developed by you
I have also explained how to use the thread consumption template (in help worksheet). There is limited number of rows in the template. Instead of adding more rows, I suggest you to add the seam lengths together for same stitch types and enter into single row.
