    Thread from Conmecting Threads

    Has anyone purchased their threads? If so, what do you think of it? Thanks for your opinions.

    Lots and LOTS and love it! The cotton thread for piecing, the Essential Pro for my long-arm. The Essential Pro is a 70-weight so it doesn't overpower the piecing or fabrics, just sinks in nicely.

    I buy it all the time and love it! So many colors to choose from and doesn't leave as much lint IMHO.

    A lot of people like it. Once I tried Aurifil, though, I haven't tried any other threads.

    Thanks for your input! I like the price and color selection but didn't want to buy without asking for opinions.

    Thread is like shoes. Not everyone likes the same pair, and different shoes are better suited for different surfaces. So there are two qualifiers to "liking" thread - *you* like it AND it works well in your machine. Some machines can be just as finicky about thread as we are about shoes.

    I bought a bunch of CT Essential spools and me and my machine both hated it, so much so that I used only a few yards of 3 colors and traded it all away.

    1) Far too much fuzz 'debris' coming off of it. At one point a huge clump fell off the needle and before I could stop I quilted it to my quilt. At this point I had only used no more than 5 yards of thread!!! I could even make a lot of fuzz just by skimming it through my fingernails.
    2) Thread shredding one ply only - tried several needles - not a needle problem.
    3) I found the appearance dull and without any luster at all.

    In short, I found it to be a thread of inferior quality.

    that said - there are plenty of people who do love it - which is how I was able to trade the 10 spools that I had.

    I suggest that you buy ONE spool and try it. If you and your machine both like it, then buy more. I made the mistake of buying a lot for a project and not being able to use it because both me and my machine hated it.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I like it. I used Gutterman Thread before, and I like Connecting Threads just as well. It is more linty, but I just clean my machine more often. The spools just go on and on. Can't beat that!! I bought it on sale and only paid $1.74 a spool. My machine, a Janome, likes it too.
