I just got my Pfaff 7570 out of the shop for a tension problem related to "fuzz ball" accumulation. I want to avoid as much of thus as I can in the future so am looking for a good thread substitute for the not so great Coats & Clark offerings. Has anyone had experience with the Essential thread from CT in this model Pfaff?
I was tired of only having the Gutterman thread to quilt with because it kept breaking or fraying when I was quilting. It was okay for piecing but the quilting was murder on the thread. I couldn't find any other alternatives until I found your catalogue. I ordered a small spool on a whim with other things and when I used it, I was amazed at the quality of the thread! I normally would have had to stop and start so many times because of the Gutterman breaking that I was shocked that I only had to stop to change the bobbin in the machine! I use a lot of white in piecing so I went ahead and ordered several cones of the white, as well as the ecru and I have never looked back. When doing an Amish-style quilt with black background, I didn't hesitate to order a black spool. I am sooooo pleased at the quality, the price, and the colours available. Literally every colour of the rainbow! And did I mention the price???? The largest spools we could get of the Gutterman was 800 meters (876 yards) at about $8.95 Canadian to 1200 yards for $2.49. Even with ordering in the US, it still is more economical for me. I have some complete sets and when some colours were being discontinued, I ordered all the ones I didn't have. I like the tips I've been reading about the colour numbers but it would be great if they could be printed on the spool somehow. Thanks for a great product and I am telling all my friends about it!
