    Need Help finding this Please...

    Hi everyone... I know this is a cheaper clear thread but, my machine Loves this stuff. I use it a lot for applique work too. It does well in the dryer on fabrics. Problem is, I've had this for so long I cannot remember Who sells it. I know I bought it locally and not online but can't remember where. It had to of been either, Walmart, Hobby Lobby or Joann Fabric because that is all we have where I live. Anyone seen this in your travels? If not, will you Pleasekeep an eye out for me and let me know if you do see it in any of the 3 stores mentioned? I looked but I didn't see it anywhere so wondering if it was discontinued and I Have to purchase online.

    Thanks!

    I googled around and am not having any luck finding this, but I did find a few references to it.
    - User "windstar" in this posting says they purchased theirs at Wal-Mart (https://www.designsbysick.com/forums...hp/t-7551.html). However, this was 9 years ago - in 2009.
    - I then searched the Wal-Mart site, but it's not listed there.
    - This shop in the UK has it listed, but out of stock: https://www.emeraldcrafts.co.uk/stit...ible-thread.ir

    My gut feeling is that it's no longer made, or has been sold to another company.
    So then I found this, which gives comparisons of invisible threads. Maybe one of these would work for your machine instead?

    Unfortunately I don't see it in stock anywhere, which makes me think that it might not be manufactured any more. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Most of the places are also in the UK. I thought that might mean it was a UK-based company, but it's in the US.

    Out of stock, but if you wanted to, you could try contacting one of them and see if they know anything about it?:

    Ridiculously expensive:

    It looks like it was made by "Wright's/Simplicity" & is no longer being made. It sold at Wal-Mart, JoAnns, K-Mart, etc.

    YLI brand would be very similar. Nylon monofilament.

    Here is the YLI, which would be the same thing but less expensive:

    To: Chester The Bunny...........

    This looks possibly like the spool! I'm going to try it I think and hope for the best. Thanks for helping!

    THANKS everyone for trying to help me find this. I do appreciate the efforts. It looks as if this thread is no longer made sadly afterall. I haven't had any luck at all finding it in any Walmart Store either. I suppose I will try another monofilament brand and see what happens. Problem is, their usually so thin and this one had a little bit more body although was still not stiff. Oh well... Hopefully will find a replacement soon.
