    I use a lot of different kinds; Robison-Anton, Madeira, Sulky and Floriani. Floriani is my favorite. It is shinier than the others and my machines like it better. The others work, but the Floriani has fewer thread breaks and stitch problems.

    I also use the metro, a LOT cheaper and does a fantastic job. Another good reason to try it out is the size of the spools compared to what you find in the locale stores. More thread per spool and inexpensive to buy.

    I too, use Metro, was introduced to it by a board menber, this has saved me a bundle. Works great on my Vikin Rose and Vikin Topaz. I have also got a good amount of Sulky and the Metro works just as good for me and much less expensive.

    I have not had any trouble with any brand but Brother. It tends to shred. Of course I bought a box of 60 spools. I have even used regular all-purpose thread without a problem. But if it is for something special I generally use guterman. The janome prefers it. and the singer just don't care except for the brother.

    I use sulky mostly in my Pfaff. The only trouble I have is with the metallic so I've just given up on them. Shall I put them in the freezer? What does that do?

    I use C&C, but mostly Threadart. They have good thread and it is in my budget. Never a problem.

    I agree - Marathon is great. I always use their royon threads in either the large cones of the smaller ones - very competitive prices too.
