    Oh I am so sorry ... I bet most of us have felt that pain...!

    Wow... ran out of thread right at the end? Big Time Bummer... Bet that won't happen again. LOL

    Now you have permission to read the Board till you can stock up on your thread.

    Moonrise, you are just too funny, thanks for the laugh.

    How terrible to run out of thread when you are soooo close, but like others have said, thankfully it wasn't your machine that quit! Thread is a cheap fix!

    Soooo frustrating! I also hate it when my bobbin thread runs out mid-seam and I don't have another ready to go. A small thing but sometimes can make you lose your concentration. I must be a slow learner cause that happens to me a lot. lol Just get out another project and work on it in the meantime. Friday will be here soon and then you can get back to this one.

    Does this kind of thread pick when thread is cut? I made a shirt for my husband years ago using this kind of thread and it picked so bad he wouldn't wear it. Just wondering if they ahve improved it.

    Thanks for the offer. From Oregon to SC seems a bit of a trip. I'll just have to wait until Friday (payday). I have other projects to work on in the mean time, like cleaning the house, dishes and laundry. ;-) BTW, Semper Fi; I always wanted to say that to you and thank you for serving our country!

    It can pick away for all I care. It's on a wall hanging! It would not be my thread of choice if I was making garments. ;)

    I usually figure there was a real good chance that if it happened it happened for a reason If you ignored this you would have put this last bit in upside down and inside out and backwards and without a doubt you would be ripping seams and cussing like a sailor at least this is how it happens here :roll:

    This just happened to me too. Bought a spool of thread from Connecting Threads along with one of their quilt kits. Not enough thread for the entire project and it must be noted that their thread is a lot thicker than most that I have used in the past. So...new order coming tomorrow and I bought cones instead of spools this time. Of course while ordering I bought five colors instead of just the one color that I need, LOL!

    My friend Jerry is a farrier. I will ask him if he has ever spit nails. Then tell him I read this on a quilting website. :lol:
