    Whoops I put this in the wrong topic - sorry I'm still new to this blogging thing.

    My DH bought me a thread cone holder for the large cones, but I don't know what kind of thread to buy or where to buy it. Should I get polyester/cotton blend or cotton for piecing and where's the cheapest to buy?

    connecting threads has a wonderful supply of great threads, very reasonably priced, lots and lots of colors, weights, types...another good source is Atlanta Thread company.
    i've been buying all of my thread from connecting threads for about 6 months and am so happy i found them. i used to have such a hard time with threads being horrible to work with for all kinds of reasons, tension, breakage, skipping...the list goes on..all of that ended when i found a source for quality thread :thumbup:

    I'd like to know the answer to this too...I am in need of getting some more basic beige for piecing and I am planning on placing an order with Connecting Threads. So would order a larger spool if that can be used.

    I have used cone thread on my regular machine with no problem. You will need a thread holder, or put cone in a cup to keep it from falling off sewing area.

    Yes, you can use the cones on your regular machine. I don't use anything else BUT the cones!! That's why you have a cone holder......

    and the idea of making angels is a GREAT idea!!!!
