What thread do you favor for children's clothes and from where do you purchase it? I've mostly been using the Madiera Rayon that came with my machine (100 colors) but realize I probably need to switch to polyester for durability and washability. I hear Floriani and Robison Anton provides good sheen and strength. I purchased a few cones of Kingstar. Like them, but really don't need 5000 m cones.

Would love to hear what you use for applique and embroidery of children's clothing. Jeanie

I purchased a set of 166 spools of poly thread from Metro after reading a few good reviews from them. Most of what I embroider now is children's clothes and stuff, so I need the durability of the polyester thread. I have the Babylock Esante and and I haven't had any problems with shredding or anything like that. I really like how my designs have turned out with the thread and I really can't tell the difference between this polyester thread and a few of the rayon thread spools I have.

Their website is Metro Thread

I really like Madeira poly neon. Tons of colors and nice sheen and strong.

Subject: Fav emb thread for kids clothes Date: 6/19/12 8:03 AM

Any polyester thread. The best thing about polyester thread is that you can bleach the garment and the color stays true. It is also extremely strong and is a choice for industrial unigforms.
Another good quality of polyester thread is its keeping ability. I have had some of my thread 7-8 years and it is still as good as the day I bought it. I never have any problem with shredding or breakage. I have been careful to store it in drawers away from sunlight, moisture and in an airconditioned room. I have always used Isocord and you can usually find embroidery thread at any of the shops that sell embroidery machines, fabric stores...or go online. I always wait for the sales no matter which place I get it.
