  • Re: What kind of thread to you prefer?

    Gini, I think what I am going to do is try three threads and see which I like the best then go from there. I have gutemann on my machine that I am trying since it's what I could get at Hancocks besides coats and clark. It's ok, but I am having trouble with my black for some reason it keeps breaking...

  • What kind of thread to you prefer?

    There are so many different manufacturers of thread and so many different weights and types. What do you prefer for each part of making a quilt? I was told to use 50wt cotton thread for piecing and 30-40wt thread for free-motion. I was also told to stay away from coats & clark thread, but how can...

  • Re: Thread breaking

    Rhonda ~ I have used many different thread types when machine quilting so I don't think its the Rayon thread. Is the rayon thread 40wt? I do know with Rayon sometimes you have to loosen your tension a bit more. Like the others I have purchased a bad spool of thread - not good! First things first...

    HI Granny M, I think that I am also late in this discussion, did anyone mention tension? As a Longarmer that is the first problem with breakage. Then sharps needle is also very helpful along with slow to medium speed. Works for me! Judylee

  • Thread breaking

    I decided to delve into machine quilting today and because I didn't want to risk messing up a large project, I simply cut a 12 x 24 sandwich on which to "play". Because I have never quiled with my machine I didn't have any machine quilting thread. I only have 100% cotton thread and...

  • What kind of thread is the best for a Gammill

    I'm pretty new to the longarm society and would like to have a variety of threads on hand. I have ordered thread - Perma-Core - from KM Quilting supply and have been happy about it, not too much lint. What is the thought on Superior Threads, such as So Fine, Rainbow and others. Have you better success...

  • Monopoly invisible thread

    Please share your experience on machine quilting with monopoly invisible thread. What size machine needle worked best for you? Did you need to adjust the upper thread tension, the bobbin tension or the foot pressure? How did you knot this slippery thread? Did you drop the feed dogs and use the free motion...
