HELP..need good website for thread

ynlover | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Hi All

I recently bought an embroidery machine and need to start my thread collection. I had purchased some of the Isocord at my local fabric store and paid more then I should have. I know there has to be a site on the internet that I can purchase my threads. Does anyone know of a good source for threads? I will probably be using the Isocord and Madera (spelling?) Could use any help with the other supplies too.. like stablizers, hoops etc.

All of your input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    When I bought my embroidery machine and cabinets I also bought the Madiera Embroidery Thread Treasure Chest.  So many colors............ and became a delight to use and experiment with.  Now when I am getting low on one of the colors I just get a new spool at my dealer......Singer.  He also carries Robinson-Anton threads which I love, more yardage on them.

    I have seen Nancy's Notions with the treasure chests on specials, about $300 for three drawers of threads and a great box for them.

    Try ebay - there are several stores that sell mini-cone embroidery thread that is polyester (like Robison-Anton) and cost is a little over $1.00 per spool.  They are usually packaged in groups of 20, 50 or 100 but it will give you alot to choose from.  The rayon thread is a bit cheaper - I prefer polyester for the durability.

    If you would rather not  buy on ebay, there are many shops on-line too.  Good luck!

      Try http://www.superiorthreads.com. I think you will really appreciate the threads. It was recommended to my by a store owner who knows her stuff. Happy Stitching!
