I check google for FAQs on threads but didn't get much.

While I'm enjoying the new embroidery machine immensely, I am astounded by
the amount of thread lint one gets.  I find myself dusting off the machine
as it sews.  I have mostly Coats and Clark and a few Sulky.  I actually had
the machine ball up once and it was knotted around a big clump of thread
dust.  Is this just the nature of a fast sewing machine and the same for
other brands of thread as well?

Re: thread
I found Coats & Clark to cause a lot of thread lint (just my opinion). I now
use Madeira and don't have that problem as often.  You still have to clean
out around your bobbin case, etc., but just for basic maintenance, not
because your thread is always shedding.  HappyStitcher

I use Sulky on my Brother PE 200 and donīt have any problem
at all with lint. I start every session with a quick wipe
around the bobbin case and the thread path anyway, just for
maintenance. Thereīs always a little in the bobbin house,
but I canīs say I see much elsewhere!

Re: thread
Hmmmmm.........sounds like linty thread.....can you get any Robinson Anton
or another good brand??  And try Poly thread..........if it is Rayon it
shreds much much easier..........I think so anyhow!!  In any event that is
way too much lint.  Personally, I am not fond of Coats and Clark........I
have sewed with it and it is nowhere near the quality of my
Robinson-Anton........others will have suggestions too, I am
sure.............

Re: thread
Would you please tell me which thread you used.  I use Coats&Clark Sylko
trilobal polyester embroidery thread and find it excellent, no lint. I
know they sell an embroidery thread at Wal/Mart and it is nothing like
the Sylko.


Re: thread
My Coats and Clark is the all-purpose cotton poly.  Perhaps is it the cotton
content that gives off so much lint.  Shall have to search the net for the
other brands mentioned.
Thanks to all for the help.

Re: thread
I bought my set of Sylko thread from  http://www.sewingmachine.com
great service also.  HTH  Karol


Re: thread
I find the Sulky good especially when it is a very dense design.  I do not
like Coats and Clark or Robison Anton, or should I say my machine does not
like them so much. Machines vary.  My new machine will not sew Sulky
varigated metallic like my old one.  Brother threads are excellent.

Re: thread
I have a small collection of Marathon threads and love them.  I don't
have much problem with lint build up.

Re: thread
I like ARC polyester thread.  It has a high sheen and stands up to
repeated washing.  So it's great for childrens clothes, nurses
uniforms, etc.  

You can get it from           www.CraftersEBazaar.com

They also have embroidery supplies.  Hope this helps.
