Normally I buy thread at Joann. Usually Gutermann, but only if it’s on sale or w/a coupon as the regular price for the big cotton spool (876 yd) is $7.79! I read about Essential Quilting Thread from Connecting Threads here and decided to try it. I had never ordered thread online…but I’m so glad I did! I know this sounds crazy…but it’s true! Their 1200 yd spool of Satin finish, double mercerized, extra long staple, 100% cotton, size 50/3 thread is only $2.79 a spool! And it fits standard sewing machine spindles!
AND they have colors galore! AND AND…a couple of weeks ago, they had oodles of colors on clearance for $1.67/spool!! Needless to say…I bought
Total Score! =)

A Thread for Life
[What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living! Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord. Ps. 27:13-14 AMP

I began using Essential Quilting Thread about two months ago, and I LOVE it!
I love it too Diana! =)
I tried this a long time ago and my machine just wasn't having it! I was so bummed, it's such a great price!
That's too bad Christine 😞
I have used this thread for years…keep a watch,out, they often have it on sale for $1.99 a spool!
I luv it too! I usually stock up when it's on sale or clearance!
I am really enjoying your scripture verses. Those are the threads on which we can rely; they will never break. Hugs!
I'm glad to hear this. They are meant to comfort and encourage. Amen!
My LQS sells Mettler, so I usually use that for piecing quilts, but I just used Aurifil for the first time to free-motion quilt and loved it. It was exciting to get through a whole bobbin without my thread breaking.
