So when I purchased my embroidery / sewing combo machine, I purchased some thread from several brands to try out.

It is looking like the coats and clark is a no-go. So now I have an 1100 yard spool of black thread. Would it be okay to use it for bobbin thread? I'll be using Sulky, Robison-Anton, and Guterman brand threads.

I'd like to know if I should keep it for that purpose at least, or give it away.

Thank you.

No to using it for the bobbin thread.

Embroidery Machine bobbin thread is lighter weight (thinner) than what is used as the "top" thread.

Sometimes it is just a certain spool that acts up and not the entire collection.

Use the black C & C and Sulky for small areas or outlines.

I included Sulky because, unless they have changed their dying process, it tends to shred when a large area needs to be stitched.

If you ever want to embroidery free standing lace in black you can use the C&C then. With the lace both the top and bobbin thread need to be the same thread so that both sides look exactly the same. Christmas tree ornaments, bookmarks there are lots of fun designs to stitch out.

Ha! I love Miss Radner!

I agree, this is a good one to use for "nevermind" posts.

Ooh! Good point!

I have tried several free standing lace already. Good idea to save it for free standing lace. I'll do that.
