    I like many brands of thread. All the well known brands have good thread so not much guess work anymore.
    Got fabric?

    I love Superior threads. Even if you don't use them check out their website, they have a lot of very interesting information regarding threads, needles, tension, etc.

    I always use Masterpiece for piecing. They do a silver grey and a darker one that between them blend with most colours.

    They don't call them Superior for nothing! I love it. For LAM and DHM.

    I also just tried Essentials by Connecting Threads on my LAM and it is wonderful. No lint accumulated in the bobbin area and the thread ran smooth as siilk.

    I also like Arufil very much for both LAM and DHM.
    peace

    I also hand piece/hand quilt & use YLI 40w. Why do you like the 50w better and where did you find it?

    thanks, i might try it. i have lots of Essential thread spools and when they are gone, they are gone. i'm tired of the slubs I find on the thread when it messes up my machine or gets caught in the eye of my needle and shreds.
