    I piece with maxilock too - got it on clearance and have never had any problems using it in a vintage singer machine. Can't use it in my "modern" machines. They don't play nice. I don't use it in the bobbins though - even the vintage machines I have can't tolerate it as bobbin thread.

    I just made a serger quilt at an Eleanor Burns retreat. Had no problems with the threads.

    Are there different qualities of serger thread? I have been told not to use it for quiting as it is weak. I also have a large supply which came free with my serger.wish I could use it.

    Interesting and timely topic. I was just at my repair shop for my Topaz 30 Viking on Saturday. My repair man said it is perfectly OK to use serger thread in the bobbin when doing embroidery. I was surprised to hear this as I thought I had to use bobbin thread in the bobbin. Does anyone use it in the bobbin when doing embroidery? I have bobbin thread to use up, so haven't tried it yet. Thanks.
