I’ve just been looking around online for thread – just normal everyday all-purpose sewing thread for “everyday” clothes I make for myself, and occassional quilts/crafts. Gutermann is obviously the main brand out there, but I wondered if people had ever used non-branded thread which is, literally, 10 or 20% of the cost of Gutermann.

Is it good/ok/terrible? Obviously, there’s no point saving money if it’s just going to cause me anguish!

    I don’t use anything but Gutermann. I won’t even put Coats thread through my sewing machine anymore because it left a lot of lint on my buttonhole foot (what might it be doing to the inside of my machine?). There is probably a reason for the price of the thread.

    thank you for the essay kate! I’m loving your thread storage too!

    I thought this might be the answer I would get, but you never know!
