    Hi I'm christy.

    I have been a quilter for years but recently inherited a long arm machine when my mother in law died. She always quilted my quilts for me and now I am learning it to do myself. I have a question. What type if thread do you use to make quilts and where is the best place to purchase. Thanks In advance.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Most quilt shops have displays of machine quilting thread. If you know the make or model of your machine, there are Yahoo groups to join as well that might be able to tell what threads work best on your machine. You can also view machine quilting threads from the Superior Threads website as well.

    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!
