Okay, now I know I've been having trouble with my machine, but seriously! My dh bought me Gutermann thread when Joann's was doing that big 50% off deal. He bought me some off white color, whatever it was that I asked for, and it unravels and breaks. Not at the needle like you might think, but rather at the little hook at the needle holder. We took it back, because I have other Gutermann thread exactly the same that doesn't do this, but how do I know if it's "old thread"?
Especially if I buy online! Is it something where I could pull of the first 10 or so yards and the rest is protected and fine or what?
