I used to grab whatever I could find to sew with, but my friend who is teaching me to quilt is encouraging me to spend my money wisely and buy better qaulity thread. I'm new to sewing so it wasn't so important to me in the beginning but now I know a bit more an know that she makes sense and it will in the long run treat my machines better too!
So I want to know what threads you guys use. Suggestions for threads? Can they be run in both new machines and antiques? As I have both. What is some mid level thread that won't brake my bank but still give me nice results?
Also tips on what thread goes to what kind of sewing/fabric would be grateful too. The more knowledge I can gather the better I will be I think! thanks in advance. Also If someone could help me decifer the needle types that would be helpful too. They sort of make sense to me.
