  • FMQ thread breaking

    Hi, I am a new member. I just joined today hoping to find an answer to a frustrating problem. I am FMQ on a long arm, so I am moving the machine not the fabric. I did a complete pass with no problems, then all of sudden I can't go more than 3 - 4 inches without my top thread breaking. I tried the...

  • Re: How can I figure out what to charge someone for hand quilting?

    I have heard of different ways to charge for hand quilting. Some charge by the quilt size, say 2-4 cents per inch. Others may charge by the number of yards of thread. Spools list the yards on the package, so the number of spools used can be calculated with the price per yard. The average price I've...

  • Need suggestions for quilting with metallic thread

    I decided to step out of my comfort zone...instead of using invisible thread and stitching in the ditch, I'm trying a Sulky metallic thread and using the blanket stitch on my sewing machine. It started out just fine, but now the bobbin thread is pulling thru to the top and the metallic thread occasionally...

  • Re: Thread

    Robin, I always use cotton for piecing because it shrinks and blends better with the fabrics. But when quilting the quilt, I use whatever works best with the look I'm trying to achieve. I will say that most of the time its cotton, but in different weights. I also use the clear mono-filament thread...

    WOW! in 5 minutes I received several answers to my question. I guess I should have been more specific, I guess what I want to know is should I be using cotton thread or poly. I have read things that suggest cotton because it is easier on the cotton material. Anyone want to give me a short class on this...

  • Re: thread

    Welcome Robin, For piecing the quilt 40-50wt thread and for Quilting I usually start with at least a 40 wt thread. As for manufacturer, I agree that your machine will dictate what it likes and dislikes. My machine, BabyLock Symphony, Love Guterman and Superior threads but detests Coats & Clark. judylee

    I just got a new sewing machine last week. When I got it, the girl told me that my thread I was using was "bad"/not good enough and that I needed to use expensive thread. I know that Sulky is great, but what do you use when you are sewing together a quilt top? Do you have a brand preference...
