    Which is the best thread to use for machine embroidery.....rayon or polyester? Also, what is your favorite brand?

    I also use Isacord. However, polyester thread will hold up better after multiple washings.

    They have different uses. Rayon has a nice sheen, but isn't colorfast. So, if the items will be used often and bleached(think kids) poly is a better choice.
