Hi. I'm new to commenting here. I just took a class from Carol Ann Waugh called "Stupendous Stitching" on the Craftsy website. Carol is a fiber artist and stated that she "loves" Essential Thread! She used it in her class project.
Can anyone tell me what threads were in the old set that I think was called Fiesta? Thanks!
I like this thread for piecing. But it doesn't do a good job for free motion, at least not on my machine. My Janome Horizon is very fussy about thread for free motion. Get a lot of missed stitches if I don't use one she likes. so far I have found Gutterman to work about the best, but haven't tried all of them. But I do use the Essential Thread for all other sewing.
Sherri, I have learned that different machines prefer different threads. I have had no problem with using Essential Thread on my Bernina. Sometimes I do need to adjust the top tension a bit, but otherwise it has been working fine. A friend of mine can only use a Mettler thread when she does her free-motion quilting on her Bernina.
This may have been asked before but can this thread be used horizontally in my machine? I've done it but wondered due to the way it's wound on the spool, should it be used vertically???? i recently had my bobbin making a rattling noise and the top thread (Essential) snagging a bit once in awhile (it was getting near emtpy).
