I've been using thread from Connecting Threads and I love it but my new sewing machine seems not to like it very much. What do you use?

I use Mettler thread. It seems to work the best for me. I don't notice any fraying or breaking.

Aurifil! This site is having a great sale on the thread and very reasonable shipping! I've ordered here before and she's very quick to ship.

I started a thread on this subject about a month ago -maybe you could search to read the responses. Based on recommendation, I've started using Aurifil and have had good results...and my machine seems happy :)

I like Robison-Anton,Mettler,YLI and Gutterman threads.
I haven't tried Aurifil thread yet. For machine quilting I just love King Tut thread by Superior.

Have you tried Metro thread. It's a poly thread. Prices are good
