    I went to an on line language translator and typed in : Dear Coats and Clark's, your thread sucks like a Hoover.

    That's what it translated it to. Supposed to be traditional Chinese. For all I know it could say hamburgers are made of sushi.

    This is what is happening all over our great country! We are being spliced together by the Chinese, Japenese, etc! Americans need to wake up and start manufacturing at home again!

    Yes they do, but until our government starts protecting our industries instead of sucking up to the global economy fanatics this is what we have. Although I'm curious as to where our govt thinks we will get money to buy the foreign products when we have no jobs to earn it.

    I also had this happen . Mine was also in the middle of the spool. Then the other day my Singer started doin crazy things. Thread breaking and knotting up on the back side of the fabric. I changed needles , I cleaned out the bits and pieces of lint and such. Then a breakthrough. I changed thread . I had been sewing with this thread for a couple of hours, then the problem. Needless to say the thread went into the trash.
