    Glide Thread

    Have any of you quilters out there ever worked with Glide thread? I never heard of it until just now when I linked to their website from Quilty Pleasures Blog. If you have worked with it, did you use if for piecing or quilting, in a DMS or LA? I'm including the website link. Thanks for any information that you can provide.

    Edit: I just went back to the website and explored it a bit further. There are several types of thread offerred by the company, so if you have experience with any of their other threads please share.

    I use it for longarm machine quilting and absolutely love it. My customers always remark on the thread when they see it in their quilts. I buy the nice brights for Linus quilts. I use the white and off white when I custom quilt. It works well for filler work. I can not say enough good about the results I get with it.

    Can this be used on a personal sewing machine?

    Any thread that can be used on a longarm machine CAN be used on a regular machine, BUT not all thread used on a regular machine, CANNOT be used on a longarm machine. Longarm machines are a high speed and require a stronger thread.

    Made in USA, yeah

    Hmmm, will check it out. I have not heard of it before. Thanks for the link.

    Very interesting and best of all the thread is made in the USA! I am going to order some as I need some black soon.

    The pre-filled bobbins solved all of the problems we were having on our longarm. This stuff is incredible, works like a miracle and is beautiful to boot.

    I bought some after I saw someone's quilt posted on this board. It was so pretty, I ordered it without thinking (I don't have a longarm). I'm glad I did--it works beautifully on my machine.

    I was given a sample pack with spools of Glide thread. It's great! No lint and beautiful colors.
    Got fabric?

    Forgot to say the Cairo Quilt thread seems to be exactly like Aurifil thread to me. I can't tell any difference. And there is a sale special on it now.
