Is cotton thread harmful?

We took a little class on the Brother PE 770 last Monday. Immediately after
that, we came down with the worst case of flu/allergy/cold in world's
history; haven't felt like seeing what/if we learned anything. However (!)
I do remember the Brother lady saying that cotton thread on the upper would
cause eventual damage to the emb. machine and that would be very expensive
to undo.
It was a great class and a wonderful shop; we'll hope to go back many
times. I do wish we had asked further about the 'no cotton' warning. Do
you imagine that was just 'her' shop's experience with cotton? or a 'real'
Brother proclamation? Any thoughts? Polly

Polly Esther, Madeira has a line of cotton embroidery thread and I've used it on both a Pfaff 7560, my old, but good machine & the Babylock Ellageo I have now and have never encountered a problem.
My suggestion is: Look at Madeira's and Brother's websites to see what they say about using cotton embroidery threads. It would seem to me if cotton is not to be used on a certain machine, one of the sites would mention it.
The Babylock dealer here sells Brother and BL, and if I talk to him anytime soon, I'll ask him.
