    Try ordering from Superior Threads http://www.superiorthreads.com/ They are very good.

    You could always call them if the computer is a problem.

    It's great thread!! A little heavier than I usually use, but when I want the quilting to show well I use it. Someone from ST is here on the board, hopefully they'll see this post and contact you.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I only use King Tut for the top and SoFine for the bobbin on my Tin Lizzie. Keep thinking I'll get brave and use some fancy thread. I also have to order it and ordered the charts with thread colors. They were definitely worth the cost.

    Google King Tut Thread and you can find a number of places to buy it. Superior will sell it for $25+ per cone, but I usually pay about $18. You can use it in the bobbin as well, but I've found that Bottom Line (also from Superior) does very well in the bobbin. Bottom Line is a thinner thread, so you get a lot more on the bobbin and it lasts longer. I have used cheaper threads, but I always end up coming back to King Tut. A lot of LA quilters also use Signature threads and really like them. They are a bit less expensive. I started out with black and white and the basic neutrals then just ordered as needed. If you have a business license you can buy wholesale and get better prices. Sew Thankful has good prices on King Tut.

    Go to superior threads.com. I belong to the thread of the month club with them. Fast, easy & the site is VERY helpful.

    I've bought King Tut thread and a bunch of other stuff from sewthankful.com. She also has fast shipping. If you sign up for her newsletter you get weekly coupons.

    Superior Threads also has the thread charts for sale with real thread swatches of King Tut - they cost a bit but it is a true representation of the thread so you cna colr match much easier - I use more Signiture than Kind tut but it is very nice thread - course I have a gammill

    Joann's has it on their on-line store in 500 yard spools and 2000 yard cones. It's not on sale right now, though. I get mine when they do their 50% off all thread sales. I got a bunch of different brands the last time I ordered & was very happy with the Robison-Anton Super-Stitch Cotton. My only complaint was that they don't carry it on cones. The spool was just enough for a twin size quilt.

    Joanns.com has the King Tut cones. I wonder if they take it off the site when they have the thread sales??? hmmmmm

    I have a Nolting Pro 24 and she just loves King Tut - so do I. It is a really nice thread for quilting. I order mine from Superior Threads either on line, or when I go to a show I get it there.

    I love KTT. I use it all the time for LAQ and regular piecing. It is worth trying.

    Joanns only sells Coats and Clark which I find to be very linty.

    I also have a Tin Lizzie and use King Tut for the upper and Bottom Line for the bobbin. I ordered mine from kenquilt.com also dba machine quilting connection. They are near Wichita, Kansas. In July, I paid $17.95 for the large King Tut and $10.00 for the large Bottom Line. They shipped it right away. I've ordered more than once and have been pleased. Superior threads included a brochure with the Lizzie showing their threads and colors.

    I stated that Joann's ONLINE sells King Tut and other brands. Our local brick & mortar shops have Guterman, some Mettler, Sulky and the bigger ones have some Signature threads as well as the normal Coats & Clark.

    And no, they didn't pull it off the website when they ran one of their 50% off thread sales or at least they didn't when I ordered some.

    Even Walmart has things on their web-site that aren't sold in their stores.

    I love King Tut, Nefertiti is the color I use more often. I love the stitches. You can call Superior threads or order online. They are tops in customer service. The thread is guaranteed.

    Thanks for that information. I had wondered where to purchase King Tut threads.

    I have a Tin Lizzie 18LS and was also recommended to use King Tut in the top and So Fine in the bobbin. I have only had my set up for about 6 months, and have done 6 or 7 quilts on it. On all but the last quilt I used the King Tut/So Fine combination and had very, very good luck. Worked very well. You get a lot of lint in the bobbin case with King Tut, but I just cleaned the lint out of the bobbin area every bobbin change and had no problem. It cleans out easily. The last quilt I did required deep purple thread (it was a Washington Huskies quilt for my grandson). King Tut didn't have a thread that was the right color. While at a quilt show I found Omni thread (also a Superior Threads product), and they had the perfect color. I bought a cone (much less expensive than King Tut) and used it in the top and bobbin both, and had no problems. I still love King Tut and will continue to use it, but I'm happy that I have found another thread Lizzie likes. Omni doesn't give off the lint King Tut does also.

    I just checked the Joanns site, and if you search Superior Thread, you will find they have a small selection of King Tut.
