    I started using 'Thread Heaven' on a recommendation for my hand quilting, and continued with it ever since. It makes quilting much easier (and no, I wasn't paid to say that!). Iíve yet to try it on the machine but understand it works well.

    One note: it was CC variegated that gave my hand quilting the fits to begin with.

    I agree, I love Thread Haven and can't imagine doing my applique or hand quilting without it. I've never thought to use it with my machine.

    Coats and Clark is notorious for fraying and leaving mounds of lint, especially darker colors. Try a bigger needle and better thread. Your worries will more than likely be over. Thanks. GiGi :D
