What is this notion used for?Machine quilting, quilt piecing, hand sewing.

Did you get your money's worth after the purchase?Yes. This spool holds 547 yards of thread, so it goes a long way. I keep a supply of neutral colors in white, cream and light grey on hand because this is the thread I use for piecing. It's 100% long staple Egyptian mercerized cotton and is a high quality thread.

Is this notion easily available?Yes. My LQS keeps it in stock.

Would you recommend it to others?Yes.

Do you get a lot of lint with this thread when you use it for embroidery? I do mean a LOT. I used it on rinse-away stabilizer to make lace like ornaments and the lint brought my little Deco to it's knees. Thanks!!

I don't use it for embroidery -- just for piecing. I haven't noticed a lint problem, but I clean out from under my feed dogs really often because I have to oil my bobbin case every couple of bobbins and I clean and oil at the same time.
