I have gotten it at JoAnn's and online at Superior Threads. I like what I got from Superior better.

I use the YLI variegateds on my long arm. I do mostly charity quilts and find the variegateds will blend in with all the colors in the quilt. I love the look it gives.

YLI has some great variegated. It is made in the US and has 3000 yrds in stead of 2000 yrds in King Tut (superior) and costs about 5.00 less a spool.

Good ole Coats and Clarks makes it and Jo Ann carries it. Jo Ann also has other brands--Sulky for one. I bought two spools of Coats and Clarks variegated last week and it looks great on the piece I made. froggyintexas

I hope it never goes out of style. I haven't used it in a long time. We had issues with it on our old longarm and just never used it on the new on until lately. My mom used it on a project and it turned out beautiful. I have to save some money up so I can order some more.

I love it, too. It disappears into the prints of the fabric.

I have been loving the "Rainbow" from Superior! I need to go to Joannes while they have their thread 50% off and see what I can find there.
