    Yes this would be the thread. I usually buy a handful of medium gray for piecing, and I have lots of different colors for quilting. You just can't beat the price and selection.

    I think it's lumpy, bumpy and linty. Cheap thread IMO. I much prefer Aurifil.

    I've used it and haven't had any problems so far.

    That's a GREAT price!

    Aurofil is great stuff but it's also the most expensive thread I've ever bought. If you can afford it, good for you. Until I win the lottery I'll stick with CT and Isacord.

    I've been a bit disappointed with ct thread, it's so linty. I am forever cleaning off the needle and bobbin case. Otherwise, it is smooth,ect. I'm going to try Isacord next.

    I buy it for $5 a spool from Tristan Threads..so it's not any more expensive than Gutermann etc. No lottery winning needed. I guess it's very hard to use quality thread like Aurifil and step down to anything else.

    Amen! I love Aurifil but I can get 3-4 times the amount of thread on CT spools, which I love the thread, for the same price that I pay for 1 spool of Aurifil. CT's thread works great for me, I have it in about 20 colors. For quilting, I prefer it over Aurifil, actually.

    I find it to be very linty...and my Elna does not like it at all. I can use Signature threads though! Go figure.
    I prefer Aurifil and YLI or Gutterman silk finish

    I bought a boatload of their thread today, too. It is linty but my machine doesn't mind, I just have to clean the bobbin case more often. I haven't had it break nor do I find it bumpy. I love the colors! Wish they had the blendables.....

    I do agree that Connecting Threads is linty thread, and if that is a concern for you it may not be the best choice. I don't mind it though, it's not that terribly bad. I really like it. I have a family of five and stay at home so we are on a limited income and for the price and selection I haven't found anything that can compare. I really don't think it's any better or worse than say, Coats & Clark cotton thread. It's not the highest of quality, but it's also not bad at all in my opinion.
