    has anyone used this brand? my LQS sells it and says have customers that swear by it - guess one lady drives about an hour to the store just b/c they have a large selection of colors. it says it is algodon 100% which brings me to the next question - what is algondon?

    no idea of the brand but the name is in Spanish and means "presence". "Algodon" is cotton in Spanish

    YOu can buy online too as tehy have wonderful sales. ANd you can get any size. I found them cheaper there but then again you can support your LQS. I love their thread. They will send you a cute sample packet too. Good luck.

    I have used Presencia and is by far one of the best threads I have ever used. I had to drive to the Canadian border to get it and now that I have moved so far away, don't know where to get it. Is a little out of my price range too.

    I prefer this for embroidery- much nicer than the old 6 strand
    floss. Recommended at my LQS Crazy Quilt class.
