    I get mine at Hancock's. They have several different brand names and quite a nice choice of colors.

    Hobby Lobby also has hand quilting thread in colors. I'm using some now and it is working fine. I also have a big supply of Gutterman's that someone recently gave me - along with the display case. I'm anxious to try it out. Got to finish this on going project first.

    I bought 3 spools of Gutermann's hand quilting thread @ Joann's this a.m. At 40% off of 220-yd spools, I expect I would have done better, $$$, to order a 1200-yd. cone from Red Rock Threads + pay shipping & handling. But, not in a mood to pinch pennies over it right now.

    Thank you all very much for your responses.

    Hi Everyone, First check the spool to see if it states "mercerized". If it does it will not bleed. Anne
