I am newly Obsessed with Thread.
I'm blaming the Sweet 16, which I've been getting acquainted with for the past 2 weeks or so.
Like all longarm quilting machines, it has a cone setup for thread delivery, as opposed to the spools we use on domestic machines. So a fresh wardrobe of thread is in order.
Superior Threads: a spool of "Bottom Line" bobbin thread (that's the white cone), plus 2 other threads and a pre-wound bobbin.
I like the Bottom Line-- it's easy to work with. And because it's thin (50 weight) one of those big M class bobbins lasts FOREVER when wound with this thread.
But I wasn't crazy about the other two threads.
When I went to Heartfelt Quilting for my training on the Sweet 16, I picked up a few cones of Isacord 40 weight thread and felt after trying it that it was by far the best I had tried. So I ordered a bunch from this store on Ebay. It arrived today.
The listing was for 25 of their best selling colors. Since I need all colors, it was fine to let the vendor chose for me. I can fill in whatever else I need individually. This seems like a nice range of colors, certainly enough to get started with!
And as long as we're on the subject of thread and machine compatibility:
That is, as soon as I figure out how to attach it! It arrived as you see it, without any instructions.
