We feature two great thread brands. Glide by Fil-Tech and Aurifil
Fil-Tec Glide™ Polyester Thread is made with Advanced Trilobal Technology that maintains consistent tension throughout each and every spool. The results are of high quality, consistent stitch formation, fewer thread breaks, and fewer machine stops. Glide™ offers superior coverage for all your sewing applications. The thread appears to melt into the fabric. Glide™ is stronger than comparable threads on the market and with fewer thread breaks, this thread quilts like a dream. Glide™ runs virtually lint-free through your machine's needle and tensioners.
