Awesome score but one caution. Some of it might already be old. While it will be fine for seaming etc, you may run into problems in embroidery, thread painting and FM usage. Thread does dry out and become fragile. I've found running a line of light machine oil down the side of the spool helps to reduce breakages.

Good point MK, I’ll try that if I run into problems with it. So far so good though, it is sewing beautiful stitches on my Bernina using various built-in stitches, and hardly leaving any lint in my machine compared to the cotton threads I’ve been using!
