    I tried using it once and did not like it but I am so used to the thread I already use. I didn't like the feel of it after either. I used it making a tablerunner. Let me know how you like it. There's always a first time. I might give it a second chance. Thanks for sharing

    Nylon thread stands up to heat. It yellows at 300F and melts at 500F.
    Nylon thread has excellent resistance to mildew, aging, and abrasion.
    Lots more info here:

    I got 12,800 yard cone for $8.!! So it was worth trying it out good or bad. I love trying different threads.
    Very informative article. I may have to try some. One question I have though, do you happen to know how hot an iron is on cotton heat?

    DH has temp sticks he uses at his job that melt at certain temps. I'll a 300 one and see if it melts on the cotton setting.

    I'm getting so many pms about this thread. Once again it is not the invisible thread, it isn't pokey, it's soft like regular thread. It's shinny and looks like the 100wt silk thread I have. It sews like the silk thread. It comes in many colors for embroidery and fabric fill work. I'll post a picture of the quilting stitches soon.

    NO, I would never use nylon thread for piecing.

    I'm sorry if I'm being a pain. Hey if this is better than the reg. stuff that I'm buying and its this much cheaper, then I'm all for it! :thumbup: :thumbup:
