    I am in need of some bobbin thread. I had a large very inexpensive cone of white bobbin thread and it was very linty. I can't believe it, but it's almost gone. I think I had it for 2 years.

    I now like kind of bobbin thread that has little or no lint. I have tried the bottom line by Superior and I like it. Have you tried any other brand that is less expensive. I want to get a couple of large cones (a black and a white) to do me over the next year or so.

    Also, where is the best deal on bobbin thread.

    Thanks for your help.

    I found this: http://www.thesewphisticatedstitcher...u60poboth.html

    Madiera is a good thread brand and that's one big cone!

    I like very thin bobbin thread and ordered this:

    Thank-you for the great link-some good deals on thread.
    Speaking of threads: while at joannes yesterday I saw cones of segar thread for a dollar can this be used for regular sewing?...I was thinking maybe bobbin thread..

    I haven"t pieced with it but I do quilt with the Signature brand, someone told me it would be too weak but it's a polyester and very tough, just looking at it I thought it would be linty but it isn't bad. I just don't know what quality you'd get for a dollar.
    I mostly use Bottomline for bobbin because its 60 wt.

    Signature is better quality then MaxiLoc from what I have read, Maxi Loc is linty. I know many quilters that use Signature serger thread for machine quilting. One quilter in my guild uses it for hand piecing. She says it doesn't twist or knot up.

    I believe that nothing beats The Bottom Line. It also lasts forever.

    I would not consider using any other thread in my bobbin than Superior Threads' Bottom Line.
    My Bernina also takes it as a top thread.
    Jems don't take on top if it's in the bobbin, so I use Aurifil 50wt or Masterpiece 50wt.

    I found Bottom Line and King Tut at kenquilt.com for great prices! King Tut was $18.50/2000 yd. and Bottom Line was $10.00/3000 yd.

    Another thread to try besides Bottom Line can be obtained from Bobbin Central. The good thing about them is that you can order free samples and they send you quite a bit, pre-wounded bobbins, and a spool for you to try.
