    I find that I need to change the tension with RA thread.
    once I get the tension adjusted it works great.
    I had some of the same problems thread breaking, loops etc.
    I would try a sandwich also and adjust until you get the stitch you want.
    I find that it does make lint but so do some others. I clean my bobbin area with each bobbin change, even when piecing.

    I bought a large spool of presencia thread for the longarm. It had so much lint, we kept cleaning it up finally threw it out. Superior threads seem to work the best with the longarm and my Janome.

    I have been using Presencia for about a year, and I use the 50, 60, and 40 weights. I had this experience with one spool of Presencia. You might have gotten a bad spool. When this happened to me, I contacted Red Rocks. They sent me a replacement spool. It was fine. If that would have happened to me on my first spool, I never would have bought a second spool! LOL!

    By the way, Sew Thankful just sent me notice that they have a sale on King Tut, 2000 yd spools for $19.99 and 500 yard spools for $5.99. Use this code SKT10 at check-out for an additional 10% discount on King Tut. I think that this is a pretty good sale.

    Yes, this thread is more expensive than Connecting Threads, C&C, and RA. Like BKressing says, using cheap thread cost her $80, and it could have been more.

    Have you priced a new machine lately? YIKES!

    After the sticker shock of buying my Bernina 730E two years ago, I decided to spend a bit more on thread, if it would help make keep my machine running smoothly and without a problem. I sure can't afford to buy another sewing machine right now.

    (I just saw the newest BabyLock last week when I went in to buy a clear serger foot, WOW! Is it a show stopper. But I have always had champaign taste and a beer budget! LOL...)
