I use Glide all the time on my longarm or domestic sewing machine. I mostly use PremoSoft in the bobbin as you can get to match the Glide. I have an account with Fil tec. I love the prewounds on the magnetic bobbins- more thread, less time and good choice of colors.

Yes, I use it for piecing, embroidery machine (both top and bobbin), and for quilting.

I too love Glide thread on my longarm but I have also used it as a topstitch thread on my domestic machine. It seems every machine loves working with Glide. I've been ordering from terylloy.com. She sells the cones for $9.95 a cone and when you order 8, the ninth cone is free! Her shipping is only $8.95. I ordered her thread card which shows every color available and that was a wise investment for me. Love that Glide thread!

I quilt and piece with Glide. It is reasonably priced (even here in the UK), strong and there is no lint.

I use Glide almost exclusively, both for piecing and fmq’ing. It is quite thin (but strong) and has helped my piecing accuracy. I use cotton only when required. Glide is a great product and a bargain to boot. Total win!

Just could not find it. Thanks for any help or suggestions for a replacement thread. I use a Sweet Sixteen sit down.
I love Glide thread! A great LQS in CT sells Glide thread: The Bolt Quilt Shop. They were in Quilt Sampler magazine. Contact them and I’m sure they’ll be happy to help. They ship!
