I cleaned my thread drawer. You know how they get, a jumbled mess sometimes. I've invested in a lingerie chest. It has very shallow drawers which is ideal for laying thread out.

As you can see, I like the Metrosene thread. It's a European brand. I guess I should say my machine likes this type of thread. If I use the Coats and Clark brand which is a variety of percentages wrapped around other threads, it seems to shred in my tension and messes up my stitches so I avoid that brand.

I think my favorite brand it Aurifil. It is a lot of value for the thread you get. It usually comes in a 1500 yard spool, which is about 2 to 3 times larger than other spools of thread. I also like using grey thread. It's a perfect blender for all types of colors.
