Marathon threads

Posted by starsgoals (My Page) on

Does anyone have a web address for on-line purchasing of Marathon embroidery threads within the USA. Also, what is your opinion of their threads?

Does anyone have any info on on-line purchasing of pre-wound bobbins for a Janome Memory Craft 5700? I ordered a supply a couple of years back but "shame on me" for not bookmarking the vendor.

Thanks,
Nancy

Nancy:
I use marathon thread (both rayon and poly) exclusively. Their web site is www.marathonusa.com. They have more than one location, so you might want to look and see which is closest to you. I order from Chicago and usually get my thread within a couple days.

Thanks, Laura. Is there much difference in the sheen of Marathon's poly versus rayon embroidery threads? Do you know how the vibrancy of Marathon's threads compares with Robison-Anton? I am certainly impressed with their advertised prices.

RE: Marathon threads

I've never used Robison-Anton, so I can't compare them, but I really don't see a difference in the colors and sheen of marathon's rayon and poly. Because of this, I'm slowly but surely switching to all poly. They look just the same to me, and the poly can even be bleached without fading.

RA threads and marathons compare well, and marathon is so much cheaper. and laura's comment about the bleaching is why i switched to poly. i did bleach tests with cotton, poly and rayon thread on table linens and kids stuff and the poly fared the best.

and ask for a thread chart from marathon when you buy, it wil make future buying easier.
