I am trying to find the heaviest thread people have experience
using reliably in home sewing machines.
the home machine will be either a pfaff 1475, singer T&S 600e ,
401a or similar
I am making some slip covers and such with light to medium weight
upholstery or decorator type fabrics and wanted to use the
heaviest thread i could reliably use in a home sewing machine.
I have made similar things with standard C&C thread for myself
**BUT** i am making some of these for the **inlaws** and i want
to use something heavier than what i typically use for myself so
that i do not need to worry with fragile seams and subsequent
The motivation for my question was ---
I stumbled across some #42 weight nylon and a poly thread that
was advertised as an alternative to using #69 upholstery thread
which most home machines including the ones mentioned do not
handle very well.
anyone have any advice about this #42 thread ?
thanks for any helpful advice,
