Default Connecting Threads . . . I'm tempted to order some 50 wt for piecing. Yes/No/Maybe?

For the past few days I've been studying thread weights & needles (which is quite fascinating ! ! !). I've purchased some Aurifil, Gutermann, etc., to get started on the correct thread path. I'm tempted to order a few spools from CT because of their prices & it wouldn't break the bank replenshing my colors. Please share some thoughts. Thanks.

I have used Connecting Threads for piecing and quilting on my Janome and it worked fine. My favorite thread for piecing is Aurifil but it is pricey.

I have lots of it. I use it mainly for piecing and FMQ on my Elna 7300 and Singer 15-91. My HQ Sweet Sixteen does not like it, the thread weight is too light.

I love Connecting Threads thread! I use it almost exclusively now. It is very economical, but a very good product.

Caroline, I also have an Elna 7300 - love it!!

I use Aurifil on my Janome. Works great and I buy it from Etsy.com. I will have to look on CT. I think it is really reasonable on Etsy.

Try it. Only you can decide. Personally, I only use it in my vintage machines that I service myself. I don't use it in my expensive, newer machines. I find it lumpy, bumpy, linty and generally not of good quality. It's cheap, but you get what you pay for IMO.

I use Precensia 50 wt. for my sewing on all my machines and it works perfectly. I bought Aurifil 50 wt. also. I love 50 wt. I've never used CT. I heard it was linty and don't need any more lint than I already have. But 50 wt. is awesome!
