Shop carefully as all Poly thread is NOT created equal!
Recently many embroidery enthusiasts are searching for Trilobal Poly Thread. Trilobal refers to the shape of the fibers that make up the thread. Standard poly fibers are round, but Trilobal fibers are like a three pointed star. This provides a lot more surface to reflect the light and result in thread that has a high sheen – often as much as rayon! It is also a stronger thread which means less thread breaks. Elongation (stretch) is also an important factor in choosing thread. Lower elongation percentages result in the reduction or elimination of puckering and looping problems. Lower elongation also allows you to decrease the tension on your machine. Some poly threads have a stretch factor up to 30%! Our new BFC poly Thread is made from Trilobal Poly fibers and has a very low elongation of 17%-20%.

    Good Morning, I compared the 3660 and 3646 this morning and there is a definite difference so I need to order 2 spools of 3646. Problem is it is not giving discounts today for points. Will it give it tomorrow? Wondered if it was deactivated because of you sale. Did you have an idea about 1574's #20. I turned 21 so it would fit by using the other machine. If I print out the template at 100% would that work? Thanks and Blessed day pat

    Hi Pat - you are right the points can't be used because of the big sale. It will be better to get the thread tomorrow as we will turn them back on when the sale comes down. :)
    I think your idea for 1574 will work well!
    Thank you -Suz
