What weight thread to use for home decor /drapery projects?
I just bought a used Consew Upholstery sewing machine (206RB) and am trying to purchase the notions i will need. I am using the machine to make home decor items to sell locally. My old Viking could not hack the heavier weight upholstery fabrics I was using, but I will keep it to sew lighter weight fabrics. I am wondering what weight thread is used in mid to heavy weight drapery projects? Do you use the 69 weight upholstery thread, or is there something better to use? For those of you that sew drapes --what type of sewing machine do you use?
