    New Thread?

    What kind of thread do you use? Do you buy thread online, and is your machine picky about the thread you use?

    I use Presencia thread. It's the only brand we carry at the LQS where I work. It is Egyptian long staple thread, terrific stuff. And only 1.69 a spool.

    ​My new favourite thread for piecing is Aurifil. I buy it at my LQS which makes it kind of expensive but you can buy it cheaper online.

    I have some aurifil and sulky but I have always primarily used the "dreaded" Coats and Clark and none of my machines mind at all.

    I have some of every brand. I like to piece with 50 wt 2 ply or 60wt. I don't have a favorite but I use Aurifil 50wt 2 ply for piecing because I have so much of it right now.
    Got fabric?

    I love Connecting Threads, Thread. They have so many beautiful colors, the spools are 1200 yards. $2.49 a spool, but you can also get it for 1.99 when on sale. I sew on a Bernina and it loves their thread!!

    Me too! I prefer the Coats & Clark Dual Duty XP. I find the regular C&C cotton to be really linty. Not that that keeps me from using it if I have it on hand and it is the color I want. I just clean out the bobbin area more frequently.

    My machine will use whatever I put on it. I buy on line all the time.

    So far my machines like any thread. Good thing, I have C&C and connecting thread threads, lots of both.
