Thread

Another question. Has anyone used the less expensive thread from Connecting Threads? It is supposed to be 100% combed cotton, comes in many collors, and is only $1.99 per spool.
Also comes in larger sizes.
Thanks,
Sara in Fla.

    I have used the 'essentials' thread for months. It may produce a little lint - as compared to premium thread. I don't have any complaints. I love the price. Bunny

    Sara - I've used it and was not impressed. It seemed thick and really left a lot of lint in my machine. I use Aurifil (50 wt. on the orange cone) and I think I'm just spoiled - it's thin, strong, and lintfree. I'm also using some Connecting Threads fabric right now and I don't think I'll use it again. The price was right, the cotton is USA-grown, but it's kind of a loose weave with lots of ravelling. NancyH
