100 wt polyester thread w/ metallic

blueiris24September 23, 2011

I just started quilting (yet again) after a long hiatus. Today I learned that when trying to work with metallic thread in my machine, rather than cursing nonstop, a more effective approach is to use 70-100 weight polyester thread in the bobbin. Does anyone know where I can purchase that? I stopped at some stores today and did a quick online search without luck. TIA

Thanks Sharon, that is where my google search led me -- seems like a great store, but I wasn't able to find poly 100wt

Try looking for poly thread used for longarms.
I have linked to a Connecting Thread Essential Pro-it is 70/3 - I've used it. You may need to adjust your bobbin tension.
Also check out Superior thread's website

Make sure you are using he appropriate needle.
