Re: Needle Me: Pick the right needle and thread

I will have to respectfully disagree about cotton thread and its use. You say you don't use it? It fuzzes up your machine? As a sewer and quilter, I use a lot of cotton thread. I make every attempt to match the thread to the fabric. With quilts this is especially important as over the years, the polyester thread can actually cut the cotton cloth and you end up with a quilt in shreds. I have switched almost exclusively to Presencia thread as it does not fuzz up my machine. I also clean out my machine on a regular basis which is a very easy task with my Bernina. I agree the right needle is essential, but the right thread for the job is too.
