Default glide thread

Is it still being sold? or is there a replacement for it at superior threads.
Just could not find it. Thanks for any help or suggestions for a replacement thread. I use a Sweet Sixteen sit down.

I'm in Canada, and order online from 3dogs quilting in Ottawa. I'm really hooked on Glide thread, and hope you'll be able to find a source.

You can get it here:

You can also get it from:https://metroemb.com/store/index.php...ory&path=72_77. They have great prices and service. I order all my machine embroidery thread from them.

I use their embroidery thread in the longarm. It's a trilobal poly and there's a wide assortment of colors.

Glide thread is made by Fil-Tec, not Superior. Superior makes a similar thread called Magnifico (also Fantastico which is variegated).

Yes, it is available. You can also purchase a color chart of the actual thread colors. There are large cones and small cones too.

I love Glide thread, but, have only used it for quilting. Can you use it to piece with or just "sew" with it or is it just a quilting thread?

Of all the different threads I have for different purposes. Glide is my favorite quilting thread. Yes, as others have said it is very much available. They will also send a sample of different basic colors if it is your first time ordering from them. Or at least they use to. I received a nice smaller spool of white thread and had a choice of white, gold or black.

I started to use Glide thread on my longarm, Tin Lizzie, and she loves it. Now I use it for nearly all my sewing, quilts and garments (except when I'm using rayon for its effect on art quilts). Since it's 100% polyester, it has great stability and strength, little or no lint and lots of colors. I think it's the best!
