  2. CONGRATS on hitting a year of blogging! I use Coats & Clark for everything -- seems as though my machine really likes that thread!

  3. Congratulations! I haven't tried many different threads, I seem to be happy with when I find a thread that does not make me have to clean my machine every few hours of sewing.

  6. hmm for piecing I use the thread I buy at the bi-anual fabric+other stuff sale at a local sewing company (so that'S uninteressting for you). For visible quilting I like to use Gütermann 'Sulky' cotton threads.

    I use Gutermann poly threads, can't tell you the wt. They are easiest available here.

  14. Yay for a whole year. =) I love Sew Stitchy and don't have any yet, so would be so excited to win some.

    I pretty much just use Gutermann, because it's a decent quality and I can get it for 50% off at Joann Fabrics when I need it. =) I'm sure that there's something better...but it works for me.

  15. Congratulaions on the one year anniversary!

    For thread, I use Coats and Clark mostly. I'm not well versed on thread so haven't tried the higher end stuff (yet!).

    ReplyDelete
  32. Right now I just use the Gutermann thread that Jo-ann Fabrics sells. I have wanted to try Aurifil but haven't won any yet to try. It's a little expensive to go out on a limb for. Congratulations on one year!! Yippee!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I am thread illiterate.... I've used Coats & Clark and Gutermann for piecing....I have a couple spools of Aurifil that I'm hesitant to use...you know, once you drive a Cadillac, and you get back in your hunk o' junk, it's just never the same. I will be doing my first FMQ this season...wish me luck!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Congratulations on the 1 year anniversary. I've only been back to quilting for about 6 months and I haven't figured out which thread I like best especially they don't carry it here in Mexico.

  51. Congratulations on your anniversary. I have become partial to Aurifil thread, it seems like a finer thread and does not shed much in the machine. Take care and have a good day. Robert, from northern Iowa.

  52. I hate to say it but my fav thread is whatever is on sale! I actually don't notice any difference between the cheaper and more expensive threads so...I buy on what's on sale! (Just like grandma taught me.)

  61. Favorite Quilting Thread......hmmmm. I'm obviously one of the 'rule breakers' I don't use an official quilting thread. My choices are dictated by color...I've used about everything you can think of to quilt with...sewing thread, tobacco twine, kite string, embroidery floss, fishing line.....
