    I use 40 wt threads in my machine.
    I like the polyester threads, they don't bleed, shrink, or break easy :D:D:D

    Nothing beats Isacord, for durability and sewing performance. It's a 40wt poly.

    Best prices are here:
    https://www.imachinegroup.com/store/cart.php?m=product_list&c=11]https://www.imachinegroup.com/store/...duct_list&c=11[/url]

    I've been buying there for years.

    I get all my embroidery machine thread from www.marathonusa.com
    I use only polyester as it washes better and just holds up better in general.
