    Any body heard of Floriani Machine Embroidery Thread

    Has anyone heard of Floriani Machine Embroidery Thread, my LQS is looking into this thread and asked me to check it out, so I thought of this board. The thread is made in Tawian for RNK Distributing from Knoxville, TN. The reason she is looking for new thread is that she lost almost 60% of her product including all of her Robison Anton Thread in a flood. The upstairs pipe to the water fountain broke and decided to check on other products. The thread looks nice but we haven't tried to use it yet. So we were wondering if anyone had tried this thread and what you think of it. Thanks for reading and your input.

    I bought the 100 spool collection and have been using with no issues. They have nice colors
    :-( I wish I was a full time quilter!

    Good thread but a little pricey.
    Lord, please keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

    Saw a quilt at the Phoenix Quilt show with lovely applique. When we asked they said they used the Floriani. We're in Apache Junction for the winter so went out and bought some to try on applique I'm doing on a quilt. It works great. I put it in the bobbin also as it's fine and not much build up on the bottom as with regular thread. I think it would work well also with thread painting, tho I haven't tried it yet.

    Forgot to add that the quilt at the show had satin stitch, and that's what I'm doing also.

    I use Floriani thread and like it. It's very smooth and looks brighter/shinier than the Isacord I also use. It looks great on the stitched items. I sometimes use embroidery thread in my sewing machine since I have so much of it in so many colors. It works great there too.

    I had always used Isacord because my dealer carries it. Since she now carries Floriani thread too, I tried it. I'll keep buying it.

    I hate that your friend lost so much of her stock and hope everything works out for her.

    I'm not familiar with the thread, but I've heard they have great stabilizers. They have a fusible, water-soluble that is supposed to be great for PITH projects. I've also heard that they only distribute to certain areas in the US. It's not widely available throughout.
