    Thread from Connecting Threads?

    New to long arm quilting and need to get some thread. Anyone using or can comment on Connecting Threads Essential Pro thread? It is polyester 70wt and I would like to know what you think about lint, visibility, etc. The price looks good and was thinking of giving it a try. This was the closest description I could find to Wonderfil Invisifil at a great price. Ann in TN

    I am a member of HomeQuiltingSystems on Yahoo. Which group specifically were you referring to? I searched Longarm Digest and didn't come up with anything. Thanks, Ann

    i've been using threads from Connecting threads with great success for the past year-
    lint is often caused by the fabrics/batting combination---and cotton threads
    before i found them i was very frustrated with threads-
    i recommend buying one cone-and giving it a try- be sure to use the correct needle for the thread and you might find it is exactly what you've been looking for.
    if you are not sure about needle/ thread combinations visit the Superior Threads web site- they have free charts you can print off that tell you what size/type needle to use with all the different threads/weights, fiber contents.
    personally i am very happy with the connecting threads - thread--i've been long-arm quilting for almost 10 years.
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy
