    Nope, not me. The quality is not good. Besides, I buy Presencia (which my machines love) for $1.69 minus the employee discount at the LQS where I work.

    That is a really good price. I use essential for all my piecing and for quilting my charity tops (I tend to use Isacord to do my own quilts, as I like really tight quilting and need a thinner thread).

    My machine loves the essential and I haven't found it any more linty than every other cotton. I did have a knot in it once, but I've found a knot in Aurifil too, so they happen...

    I've been using this thread for quite a while and haven't had any problems with it, actually, I like it just fine. I know there are others who don't and that's okay, but for those of us who use it and like to purchase it while it's on sale, I hope this post helps.

    I might also add that i have a very large collection of antique and vintage machines, and a couple of newer ones, and I have never had a problem using this thread.

    I like this just fine, too, but then again... I'm not horribly picky about my thread (the one thing I'd not picky about re my quilting... LOL!). I especially like to use it in my bobbin.

    Love the price, but my new machine doesn't like the quality. Drats!

    I use it all the time and just got new catalog but didn't see any of the thread on sale. Will have to check website. Thanks for the info.

    I've never had any problems with Essentials cotton threads, have 2 of the big cones, my machines all like it just fine.
    I can't use some of the other threads in my older machines as the top thread breaks.
