    Machine Embroidery thread & Amazon

    Has anyone purchased and used any of the machine
    embroidery thread from Amazon?

    I made a purchase and received my orders last week
    bought the following (see pictures below). I have not
    yet tried any of these threads out as I have been having
    to much fun learning my new sewing family addition, which
    is my Brother Innov-is 1500D. LOVE LOVE LOVE the machine.
    So much quieter and easier to use than my old NV1000 machine.

    Gold & Silver metallics 5,000 yard each spools.
    When I made the purchase I missed seeing that
    last zero and thought I was getting 1,000 yard
    spools not a combined 10,000 yards. HOLY COW
    are these spools HUGE.

    To get an idea of how much bigger the big spools of metallics
    are compared to regular sized spools.

    You'll be quilting with gold & silver FOREVER! This reminds me of an old Girl Scout song "Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold". You must have lots of friends.

    I "hope" to be making a lot of FSL ornaments this year with the
    gold and silver as well as all the other metallic colors I have.

    I tried 3 of the bright colors this weekend , and I can honestly
    say that the neon yellow does not work to well on white LOL.

    Lesson learned on that.

    The "brand name on the bright colors is: Embroidex
    It seemed to work ok, but only did a little bit of wording
    with it.
    cost was: $13.99 (sold out, they do not know if they will
    be getting anymore)

    The brand name on the 20 spools of metallic is: threadsRus
    I have not yet tried this thread yet, plan on it very soon though.
    cost was: $58.95

    As for the jumbo spools of gold & silver metallic they are same brand
    as the other metallic (threadsRus).
    cost was: $12.90 this IS a fantastic cost
    (I spend more than that on 1 spool of Floriani metallic)

    I got it all on Amazon.

    I also stocked up on plastic bobbins for my Brother machines AWESOME
    pricing!!

    I get my Prewound bobbins @ Threatart.com, they have pretty good prices. It takes an "a", they seem to be a little higher than the "L" ,I gets 144 for about $38.00, I get the plastic bobbins, and can re use them on my Decorator"s Choice (Baby Lock), can't use them on my Baby Lock Quest, different size bobbin. I have about 300 on hand, at this point.
