I have used a 50 wt cotton thread, the one used by quilters, with success. Cotton thread leaves a lot of lint but that's not a problem if you clean the bobbin area often.
I use rayon for free-standing lace designs digitized for rayon. Hugs, Lidia
i called a few dealers i buy things from, i got one to get me some 30wt cotton, 1100 yds for 4.50 cotona cotton by madiera, lot cheaper than i could have gotten it for, angel was on my shoulder today, thanks for your help too cuties.. doris
Glad you had angels on your side.
I love the Madeira cotton - used the 30 wt a lot for bobbin lace making, now use it for machine lace.
That is what I could find.
what kind of thread do you use for lace? i can't belive size 30 cotton is so hard to find , unless you have a big pocket.do you ever use polyester for doilies? i read it somewhere.. i may be stuck with a lot of 50-3 cotton. do you need any at a real good price,? thanks doris
I use 40 weight for my FSL
does someone know where i can buy some 30-35 wt cotton thread , please, thank you doris
You could try using 2 threads together. I have done that with a 60wt thread.
I do not know myself and hopefully someone else will come along. I would do a test stitch and see
