Default Purchased glow in the dark thread. Need your input.

I just purchased Superior Threads' Nite Lites thread. Have any members used this thread and do you have any help/suggestions for using it? Did I make a mistake?

I have some glow in the dark thread, but haven't used it yet. Thinking about using on kids quilts so they
can see it at night.

It is best when there is thread build up- a single stitch line isn't going to show much. It works really nicely in a satin stitch.

Made a cute little ghost on embroidery machine. Made into mug rug. See no difference from my other threads. Haven't tried in regular machine.

I used it to quilt my Halloween quilt last year and its super cool. Still glows well after multiple washings, my oldest daughter loves Halloween so its out all year long. I was able to get a picture of it last year so I will re post it here so you can see. All stitching was a single pass FMQ on my 6600 :-)

I'll have to check into it for the little DGD's quilt. She giggles at anything "Glow in the Dark".
