I have tried all brands of thread from expensive to less expensive.I like oasis thread it comes from India but It really has vibrant colors and enduring no constant breaks.

My Viking dealer recommends Sulky and Robson-Anton (sp?) I also have Madeira which Nancy's Notions recommends and I got free when I bought my Koala sewing cabinet.
I have used all three and can't tell the difference.
They are the only brands that I am familiar with and I have had no problems with any of them.

I like Isacord polyester, and it doesn't run or bleed. My Bernina doesn't like Sulky. Try Threadsetc's website (you'll hafta Google it cuz I don't have it with me, and it's under a parent company, I believe). They feature a specially priced column of colors each month at $3.10 a spool plus shipping. I have 200+ colors now, aiming to "collect" all 350+ colors by getting 10 a month. Plus it's fun to get 'em in the mail.

Oops. The website for Isacord thread is www.threadetc.com, not threadsetc.

Sorry!

I've ordered some ARC, hope it was a bargain, 48 spools of 1000 meter thread for about 80 dollar, excluding shipping...

I ordered an ARC starter kit with 48 for the same. Just got it Friday but I don't have my machine yet. The colors are beautiful tho! Now I regret waiting to pick up my machine after my vacation is over as all I did was think about it! LOL

RE: Brand of Thread

ARC is just fine and works well and stands up to alot of washings. In the beginning, I thought it must not be good because it's cheaper...NOT SO. I usually use Isacord cause I like their spools and because I received a bunch from my husband. I only use poly.

Hi Joly,
I can imagine. My story is the other way around. I can't wait untill my threads arrive. At the same time/ place I ordered an ultimate box and card so I can make some of the projects from the internet :)

RE: Brand of Thread

Well, yesterday, my last day of vacation I decided to go get the machine, got home, read the book and thought I'd try a sample...no hoop or embroidery foot! When they repacked the machine they must have forgot. I'll have to call today, I drive 2 hours to work the opposite direction so that means a 100 mile around trip after I get back from work tonight. =(

RE: Brand of Thread

I hav bought threads from threadarts.com.....really beautiful ...shiny...strong...do not break.....I think they are really good....and about 1.75 a spool.....I am happy with them....they only have 80 colors...that might be a drawback.....I use polyester....
