    How do I use the big cones of thread on my regular sewing machine? I've ordered some, but I've never used them, so I was wondering if they will fit on the thread holder on my machine?

    Sit it in a coffee cup next to your machine and see if that works. Anyway that's what I would try.

    Generally, you will have a stand that sits behind your machine that you place the large cone thread on and feed it thru your machine. Stands are available thru Clotilde and others, very inexpensively.

    I use a thread stand, but I don't use the cheap Dritz one. I use one similiar to this one from Clotile's. http://www.clotilde.com/detail.html?...a=thread+stand
    It is cast iron and much better. It won't bend and doesn't tip over.
