I would like to start quilting on my home-machine and was wondering what would be the best thread
They didn't suggest any thread weight the woman at the shop was just suprised that I use such a heavy weight. I told her I have been usng 50 weight thread for a while and have never had an issue...
I would make sure you have a machine with quilting/darning foot, quilting needle and a machine where your feed dogs go all the way down. From that point I would try thirty weight but I have used 50wt quilting thread for machin quilting and have never had an issue. Feel free to ask any ?'s and if you have a chance visit my blog: www.sallysallysquiltingcorner.blogspt.com

Sally, Connecting Threads is usually where I shop, I love their kits, fabrics, threads and books when they are on sale.
