    I was told when I purchased my sewing machine (Bernina) to never use C&C thread but to always use all cotton thread if you are sewing all cotton fabric, makes sense to me. It fuzzes up a great deal because it is made with shorter threads in the process of making it. From some of my previous sewing habits I had a great deal of cotton/polyester thread on hand. I use it to make those fabric bowels(using my old Singer) and did a lot of satin stitching. It was a good way to use it up. Now I use only Aurifil in my machine. I like it and even with the cost it does have 1300 yards of thread on a spool and does come in different weights. For hand quilting I use only a thread that states it is for hand quilting, and I have used Gutermans along with Americana and YLI which are both 100% glazed quilting threads.

    I don't know, but have you tried low heat (like hair dryer). I haven't used the product.

    I've heard a number of quilting professionals say that the top, #1 thread is actually Arofil (sp?). A lot of the pros use it. When I checked on it, it turned out to be so expensive that I had to ask myself, "What am I getting into here?"
    My quilts are not ever, ever, made with the intention of submitting them in a show. They are made for family and friends. Most of the time my quilts are dragged around and loved to death by kids. I even make small ones for family pets. Do these quilts need the very highest quality of everything? No! I simply put the best I can afford into them and everyone so far has been happy with them. And -- P.S. they last a long time! 8-)
    :thumbup: That's me, I also make them to be used.
