We stock a variety of threads, but Amy's favorite choice for machine quilting and embroidery is Glide Thread by Fil-Tec. It's a strong, beautiful, lint free thread of superior quality made in America at a reasonable price.
Glide utilizes special technology to capture a beautiful luster within the fibers of a colorfast polyester. Amy carries 200 hundred colors on 1000 meter (1100 yard) mini-cones. Glide, with its Advanced Trilobal Technology, will maintain consistent tension throughout each and every spool. The results are high quality, consistent stitch formation, fewer thread breaks, and fewer machine stops.
Cross wound on mini cones, this thread likes to feed into the machine off the top of the cone. Using a cone stand or a special spool holder for cones on a horizontal spool pin works great.
200 colors are listed online currently, and we are beginning to list the large 5000M cones of Glide as well. Contact us if you'd like to place an order for anything you can't find in the Glide range. We will likely be able to accommodate you as well as order larger cones for long arm machines and prolific quilters.
