I like Isacord the best which I usually end up buying at my local Bernina Store. On certain club days, we get 20% off so that's when I stock up! :wink:

I got a collection of 120 colors of Thread Arts on Ebay for $150.00 with the rack included. This was 2.5 years ago and only ran out of black. I use them a lot and never have broken threads.

I have a CV also. I use Robison Anton but it tends to break easily in the machine. If you have problems with breakage let me know. There is a way to stop the breakage while embroidering. Allbrands seams to have good prices.
