I will post a new thread with pictures within the next few days, but I am excited. My DH has worked hard to put together a long arm quilting frame (Little Gracie) along with a vintage machine that he has completely refurbished for me. We have a total of $400 invested in this project and I am now doing practice runs with it so I can start doing some of my own quilts. I don't ever expect to get good enough to do quilts for others. That is not my goal. However, I need some advice. The only problem I seem to be having is the top thread seems to break frequently. My dh says it is because the thread I am using is "cheap" thread. What thread is the most popular among the professional LAQ's on the board? Any suggestions you might have will be greatly appreciated.
