  1. I wonder how that thread would work in the long arm....... I love variegated thread for use in quilting. I figured the Maxi Lock would work because aren't sergers fast machines? Nope, it broke too much for my likes. I even bought a more expensive brand that mentioned good for use in long arm machines - nope - too many breaks. I have to say my machine loves some of the "Superior" brand threads (not all) but for what I do, I can't justify the cost of their threads... Okay, enough about me, this is worth checking out and if nothing else, I'll piece with it :-)

    1. Hi, Katie - I don't know if it would work in the long arm or not. The ad in the catalog says - "Multi-colored Essential(TM) Thread spools are great for quilting, embroidery, or even just a straight stitch. 1200 yard spools of 50/3 Double Mercerized extra-long staple cotton. Approx 58" repeat, color change every 19"." I just added that info to my post as an edit update - ;))

  5. Maybe there were others who were asking the same thing---bring it back! I don't think I have gotten my copy of the newest catalog yet. Mail lady has already been here for the day. HMMMM well there is always the website.

    1. You're probably right - we couldn't be the only ones who wanted them to bring it back!!

      I got my copy of their catalog a week or so ago - it's the March 2014 issue. The cover says - "NEW! Golden Age - NEW! Natural Love II - NEW Silk Batting and Variegated Thread Spools". I didn't even read the blurb on the cover - I just found it on Page 9 as I was thumbing through the catalog.

      I just checked the website - it's not available yet. I guess the only way to see the promo is to follow my link or to go their site and do a search for "variegated". Maybe tomorrow - ;))

    1. THANKS!! - Wouldn't it be great if we ALL ordered some - and they underestimated the "demand" - and "sold out" sooner than they expected?? - ;))

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
