I've had good luck with the thread I get from Metro Embroidery - it's inexpensive and I've never had a problem using it in my Brother Innovis 4000D...

FuFu has been rebranded as Floriani and is now sold by many dealers.

I dont think this is true. Floriani cannot do that and I dont think fufus would allow that. Why would they want to sell their thread with a different name? doesnt make sense.

They do. I have had contact directly with FuFu's to attempt to find a distributor in the US. I was told repeatedly the same thing....

To the OP you should tell us how many heads you run and potential production. That is going to determine the thread you should by. It is not just about cheap thread if you are in high production you also need a relationship and a well organized thread distributor. Trust me if you went extremely cheap you will have consistency issues and stock issues across the board if you deal with a major supplier consistency is something you can count on.

We have had the best performance from threads that are 3ply and come on tapered cones, those cones that have parallel sides sometimes have a problem with the thread hanging up at the bottom of the cone/spool. With the tapered cones the thread flows smoother. As far as visuals we believe that the three ply threads present a slightly better appearance. Additionally the three ply threads consistently sew small lettering and detail better than a two ply thread in that it has fewer thread breaks or fraying.
