I have 6 swf and I am using 80% MARATHON POLY ($ 4.25)

The other 20% are ISACORD , MADEIRA , RAPOS

SWF and MARATHON made in korea so works perfect for us.

I have an old brother 416 and it's a picky eater. Isacord runs nice but it's dull sheen isn't what i want. i'm switching over to coats sylko because it runs just as good and has a nice jewel look. i get it from sewingmachine.com for under $7.

There are many shopping stores where you can buy quality thread at reasonable prices. However, I purchase it only from OregonPatchWorks, as they provide quality as well as quantity with huge discounts to their customers.

Best advice is to request samples from different brands. They usually send black and white. If your machine runs well with these, usually can use their brand.

The reason for black and white is the black is usually reduced or the white is bleached when they have excess colors.

You can go for premium polyester thread. It is very inexpensive and you will get it easily. I usually buy all embroidery related stuff from OregonPatchWorks. They have a great collection of embroidery threads also.

I'd have to say overall it would be FuFus. I've tried others but none of them give me the results I want.

I stick with Madeira Poly as my #1 Choice.
It may not be the cheapest but we have found it to be the best for production and quality and inventory is almost never an issue.
I have had contract customers supply thread (non madeira) and every time we have to run it then we end up having more problems than the savings would be worth to change over.

Isacord would be my second choice and its the Strongest thread I have seen so far but not quite as smooth as Madeira when running thru the thread path.

RA would most likely be my third choice and in recent years they have gotten much better than they were in the past.

If the cost would allow I would run Madeira Frosted thread in production much more than we do. Its FANTASTIC for small text and details but we only keep that around the shop in limited colors.
