Hi All,
Can you please tell me which brands of thread you prefer for your serger? I am new to serging and purchased a used BBL Evolution. Thank you for your suggestions!

I use Maxi-lock because that it is what the stores in my area carry.

I've been using primarily Maxi Lock in my Evolution. No problems, lots of colors and I can usually get the small cones from Wawak for $1.59 each.

I use whatever is avalaible. Have bought from Joanne's, Hancocks, Nancy's Notions, dealer's- wherever. The beauty of my Evolution is its not fussy. I have used serger, sewing, jeans, wooly nylon, crown, etc- any type.
The worst is the cheapest and only because it leaves so much lint. If I am seeing lots of lint buildup in needle and feeddog area at the beginning of the project then I get pretty aggressive about cleaning it- I don't wait till the end. But there's no problem handling various threads. I'm kind of into cleaning lint & dust due to my asthma.

sewing brings joy and meaning to my life...

I recently traded my bb serger for the Evolution. It came with Madeira serger thread. To my surprise, it produces a lot of lint.
I've used Madeira embroidery thread with good results in my Ellissimo.
With the Evolve, I could use any thread I wanted. I'm new with the Evolution so I need to find out.

Thanks for the input. I am so excited about my new machine! How great that it uses so many types of thread without a problem.
