Weight of thread
I have several programs that make lace on my embroidery machine. However none of them tell me the weight of thread I should use. Should I use a finer weight such as 60 or 80 weight? Should I use the same thread in the bobbin? Thank you
Hi there Caecelia, I too have several lace packages, they recomend you use 40 weight Rayon embroidery thread I use Robson Anton. For stand alone lace you should use the same thread, if you are stitching onto fabric use a light weight bobin fill, I recomend Madeira Burmilion No: 200. Use Metafil No:12 (80) on fabric and No: 11 (75) embroidery needle when using hot water soluable aqua film. If the lace is not fine enough for you you could go down a thread weight, if you do please let me know I'd be very interested how it turns out.
regards and happy embroidering.
Thank you, I will keep you informed. Cecelia
