Good sewing thread prevents problems
If you are experiencing problems with your sewing machine, you should first replace the sewing machine needle. If you are still experiencing problems, you should ask yourself if your sewing thread is of good quality. People often think that there is no difference in sewing thread and so they buy cheap sewing thread. But all well-known sewing machine manufacturers will always recommend good quality sewing thread
Sewing machines work best with quality sewing thread
When you thread your sewing machine with sewing thread it is passed through various hooks, guides and of course a tension disc. All of these obstacles that the thread passes through have the purpose of maintaining the tension of the sewing machine. If you don't use quality sewing thread, lint is left everywhere which eventually causes tension problems. All that lint accumulates at the tension disc, which prevents you from having even tension. Cheap thread is full of lint and bumps. Nothing is more frustrating that you have thread breaking quickly, stitches skipping and uneven tension. Choosing quality thread like Gütermann will greatly reduce these negatives.
Cheap polyester sewing thread
Polyester sewing thread is more often cheaper sewing thread and is all-purpose thread suitable for most sewing projects. It is a good choice for woven fabrics, jeans and fabrics with stretch because Polyester does not break easily. Most polyester threads are treated with a wax or silicone coating, which allows the thread to glide easily through the fabric. Polyester sewing thread is widely available and offered in a wide range of colors. There are several other advantages to polyester thread it is durable for heavy use. It is stronger than rayon or cotton and more colorfast because polyester fibers hold the color pigment longer even through more washings.
Choose the right color sewing thread
Choose a sewing thread color that matches the color of the material or fabric you will be working on. If you cannot find the right color sewing thread, choose a sewing thread that is one or two shades darker than the color of the fabric.
Alternatively, a lighter colored sewing thread would be an excellent choice when mixing the colors.
