Hi everyone! Hope you are having a good saturday. I have specialty bobbin thread for my embroidery machine. Which I might add works very well. Has anyone ever used this in their sewing machine bobbin also? Just curious as to how it worked. I have two huge bobbin threads one white, one black.

Hi girls, Chrisantha you are lucky if you can embroider with ordinary thread and it doesn't show through the top. I recked so many trial projects experimenting with normal thread. I traded my machine in for different reasons and now I have a top model and the latest edition sewing /embroidery machine and love it. I haven't wrecked any projects yet, but maybe also because I always, always......... use embroidery thread in the bobbin. I figure that it's not worth taking any chances. I once used a very fine serger thread with my old embroiery/sewing machine in the bobbin to embroider and it usually worked. It's a good idea to have a separate bobbin holder for your machine so that you don't have to keep adjusting the tension screw. Good luck trying whatever works best for you. Buttons:Canada:
