    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...

  • Re: Sewing Machines

    Have you considered that the thread might be the problem? I used to sew with Coats & Clark thread all the time on my cheap Singer. But, I cannot use it in my computerized Bernina. The manufacturer also does not recommend it. The modern computerized machines are much more particular and using a higher...

  • 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...

    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?

    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
