    I have about every brand of thread. All the good brands are alike as far as quality. I like Connecting Threads Essential threads, Robison-Anton, Aurifil, Superior, YLI, Sulky, Fil-Tec, Guttermann, InvisiFil, Star, Supreme, and Coats and Clark variegated. I use cotton, poly, rayon, and nylon. For hand quilting I like YLI hand quilting thread, for applique I like YLI silk.

    I have been trying to learn all the differances when it come to threads and it can be so confusing. I was at Joanns the other day & had full intentions of buying thread and I ended up so confused I didn't get anything.

    I have a serger so therefore I have quite a bit of serger thread. Lately I have been using that.

    I'll be watching this thread to learn about threads. LOL.
    As someone who is new to the sewing craft, the only difference that I can tell between threads is how linty they are. I've been using my JoAnn coupons to stock up on their Guttermann 50wt cotton thread, I think it is my favorite for piecing, and I don't see much lint using it. For quilting, I've been using Sulky invisible thread and like it.
