Cone embroidery thread?

This is another item on the auction inventory. I don't know that I've ever seen embroidery machine thread on a cone, is there such? A serger isn't on the list or I'd think they made a mistake.

RE: Cone embroidery thread?

Embroidery thread on cones cost about $15 a cone. I have bought it in colors I use a lot of. It is around 5000Yds.

RE: Cone embroidery thread?

I have some on cones, too...they are a bit tricky to handle on my machine that has a horizontal spool pin. I need to figure out how to lengthen my vertical pin so I can use that.

I bought mine at a show this year and got them for 50% off...I can't imagine that I will EVER use up all the thread on them!

RE: Cone embroidery thread?

I have the large cones in red, white, blue and black, since I use those colors the most. I have a seperate thread stand that I use them on - it sits on the sewing table to the rear right of the machine.

RE: Cone embroidery thread?

the thread exchange has cone embroidery thread at low prices. they also sell partially used spools by the pound-try doing a search for assort or asst to see these.

Here is a link that might be useful: thread exchange

RE: Cone embroidery thread?

I use cone threads from a portable thread rack. Then I just thread the machine as normal. It works just fine.
