    I love their thread! And my Janome seems to like it very well also. Santa is bringing me quite a bit of their thread. LOL!! And he is also bringing me 3 of their cases to store it in.

    I also use their thread and find it to be good qualtiy. JAlthough it is a little linty, it is not as linty as coats & clark or other cotton thread. Just remeber to clean out the bobbin area and under the throat plate every so often and you'll be good to go. And the price is really good, especially when it's on sale (that's when I stock up).
    Do all for His glory.

    I use it and all my machines like it. I buy the collections when they have a 40% off sale because I make clothes too and it is an easy cheaper way to build a good color selection. I also like their storage cases, I buy when they are on sale. Plus if you spend $50 you get free shipping.

    I use it for quilting all the time, and piecing if I need a specific color.....it works great on my 6600, but is a little linty, requiring me to clean a bit more (not a bad thing).....love the availability of so many different colors!

    I have, and it was my favorite thread until someone on the board recommended Aurifil. Good as CT cotton thread is, Aurifil is less linty in my machines - Pfaffs. I clean the bobbin case (and everything else in my machine that I can reach) when I change bobbins. BUT I know lint also gets into the machine where I CAN'T reach. That's why I take my machine to the dealer once a year to have his people clean it & do anything else that's needs doing. You'd be surprised if you could see how much lint gets in there!

    I love it. It is a little more linty, but I don't see that as a problem. I just clean the bobbin area more often. The price is very reasonable especially when it is on sale. I just got my new catalogue and it doesn't seem to be on sale. I have gotten it cheaper than $2.74. It lasts forever.

    CT thread is the same as Star thread. Not good for our machines and is so thick it takes up room in the seams which can throw off accuracy. CT has another thread Essential Pro which is a better choice.
