Thankyou! I would love to know where I can get the noodles from. I used to see them all the time in packaging but not lately.

Did you forget that JerriLyn (Jrob) (or was it SimplyRosie?) gave us this tip in projects a couple of years ago?? I've been using it ever since.

Hugs and Roses, Meganne

Once you get a good metallic thread in a large spool - with a way to handle it - they are really nice to stitch with.

Thanks Shirlene - great tips for Metallic thread. I have been using the thread from behind the machine which seemed o.k. but this extra hint with the packaging polystyrene will surely make it run smoother.

Neat tip - thanks for posting this.
I wonder if this also might work for regular thread.
Last weekend I was stitching with a large spool of thread and it seemed like too much was un-winding off the spool and it would kink before it went through the thread path. I use a thread stand like the one in the video.

Eugina, I use that same stand, too. I guess - it sure wouldn hurt to try it. Hehehe! *4U

Thank you very much Shirlene, I will look at that video 10 or 20 times, and I hope that I will understand thanks to the picture. I have not understand what is this little white piece where she put the thread,after the great rod. I have not such a thing????

mops by mops 21 May 2009

It's a piece of styrofoam, used for filling up packages. In Europe it is replace by other products, like the air-filled bubbles, but any piece of foam will do.

shirlener88 by shirlener88 21 May 2009

Claude, I can understand how you might not be able to figure out what it is - with the difference in lanquages - but as Martine has said any piece of foam would work.

Nice, Sirlene. Jerrilyn mentioned it quite a while ago, but now people can see what she meant.
