I've heard about the quilt police..... but thread snobs??? Okay, there are some very expensive threads (that can also be bad from time to time) but to bad mouth C&C thread??? It was the go-to thread for so many years.... and I still use lots of it without a problem. I use all kinds of threads and find that if they are cotton, my machines like it....... if they are poly, my machines revolt! They don't read the labels.... they just sew.
