    Thanks for the link, Prisma. I just ordered the free DVD. I've watched a few of Bob's youtube vids and I think it will be nice to have it on DVD.

    I use their Masterpiece thread for piecing an top and bobbin. And I use Bottom Line in my bobbins on my long arm and in both when doing SID.

    I received my DVD and viewed it today. It is really SUPERIOR information. Bob defines the uses of each weight and why. He also explains why topstitch titanium coated is a superior needle. I have used them and agree. They last much longer and are well worth the $1 extra price for 4. They also will bend instead of breaking which keeps them from going into your machine if you have a mishap.

    I use Bottom Line in bobbin when piecing, in bobbin in Longarm and even as a top thread in both when I want to use a finer thread. It has never MELTED when I use a hot iron. I even mix the thread sizes & types of thread in my machine, but always use Bottom Line. I have even used Superiors "So Fine" in the bobbin and it works great too!

    I really hate to sound dumb, but when you say bottom line thread, are you referring to the prewound bobbins?

    Bottom Line is a 60 wt poly thread from Superior Threads. It comes in spools, cones and pre-wound bobbins.

    I use it in my bobbin for FMQ. I just blends into the background fabric so beautifully.

    I just pushed my like button for this comment. I, too, have been sewing since the 70s and mixing top and bottom threads with no problems with wear and tear - only problem I ever had was using 100 % cotton thread on top and bottom and the quilt is giving way in places after 8 years of use.

    I've been quilting for 30+ years, often using different threads, quilts have been well used and washed alot - no problems.
    We really need to put to rest a lot of the old rules.
    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.
