    Hi & welcome from Texas. I found a couple of sites that might help you. One is how to use the Towa bobbin tension gauge & the other is from Superior Threads that is a Towa Tension Gauge Reference Guide. The guide doesn't show Glide thread on it but maybe this will help you some.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. I think Jamie Walen from the Quilters Apothecary has a YouTube video on bobbin tension.

    My greatest fear is all of my family standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" he was.

    Welcome from south west Ontario - I have family up your way!
    A husband is the perfect confidant to tell your secrets to - he can't reveal them to anyone else because he wasn't really listening when you told him!
