QOTD: When hand-quilting is serger thread ok to use?
I am wanting to use multi-colored spools of thread to hand-quilt my next lap quilt. My local Hancock Fabrics store mailed me a sales paper and they have pretty multi-colored 3000 yard spools of serger thread for $4.99 a spool, which is a lot cheaper than $2.75 for 1 spool 325 yards of solid hand-quilting thread. I have never touched or used serger thread. Is it a strong and durable thread? Can it be used to hand-quilt with? If I were to hand-quilt with it does it tangle up on itself easily does it knot up easily when you are trying to pull it through fabric, cause that's something that I would not want to deal with. How does serger thread compare to hand-quilting thread and all-purpose thread? I appreciate your feedback. Also if you do not recommend using serger thread then what brands of multi-colored spools of thread would you recommend for hand-quilting and where online do you buy it from? I unfortunately do not have a Joann's in central Louisiana area.
Best to you and many thanks,
