Just wondering if anyone has used Madeira Aerofil (which Nancy's Notions sells.

I've been using Coats & Clark, and while I have no problems per se with it, it is linty, and I'd love a lower-lint/fluff/fuzz kind of thread.

(I hope I put this question in the right forum. I wasn't too sure....)

It is my go to thread when I can't get a good match with Gutermann brand which I purchase when on sale. I have never had a problem and it is considered a better thread than C&C. Until getting a Baby Lock, I was raised on C&C.

It is very nice thread. I use it all the time. It is fine--great for piecing quilts. It is one of my favorite threads--not linty, nice color selection, etc.

Sewing machines make me happy. I like sewing with them, cleaning them, petting them, gazing longingly at them.

I use the Aerofil serger cones and I think it's very good. It's very consistent and not linty.

Thank you all so much! I have an order for some things from nancy's Notions, and I was hoping to be able to buy some thread, too, if it was good thread.
