HI,
Can you all tell me What the best type/brands of threads you use on your Machine Quilt frames? Also do you like 100% cotton or a blend? I will be using a Viking mega quilter (9inch) with a B-line studio frame. I want to buy some to have on hand. Thanks for any help. 8-) Lori K. icon17 PS any Ideas on good prices too.

I use Superior Threads: King Tut and Bottom Line. Very little lint and no thread breakage.

I use Signature from kmq.com, their prices are good and their service is great. The Signature thread I use is the cotton cones but I am also going to try the Essential Pro for machine quilting from Connecting Threads,

I mostly use Glide from bobbincentral.com (I think you have to have a minimum $30 order), but I've also used So-Fine; embroidery thread from metroemb.com; and Isacord, which I can get at an LQS.
