PostSubject: Embroidery Machine thread   Sun Aug 24, 2014 3:39 pm

Finally playing with my new to me embroidery machine....a reward for finishing those valences yesterday.

Using up thread that the lady who sold it to me gave me. What thread is good to use with these? I know Sulky has a large selection of colors. I'm a bit in the dark.

Anyone with an embroidery machine.....any advice? What kind do you prefer to use?

Try Metro... it is less expensive, lots of colors and works nice.  http://metroemb.com/store/  

  I use the Sigma thread for long arm quilting alot.  You can purchase large cones or small cones.  I use the small cones for embroidery as I can get a lot of colors and you usually don't use alot of one color when doing embroidery.
