The difference that choosing the right thread for your sewing projects can make, is HUGE for so many reasons.
A few of the problems that occur if you choose the WRONG thread, or an inferior thread are;
When you're sewing and your thread continues to break, it make's sewing very unpleasant, having to continually re-threading the machine. Inferior quality threads can be prone to breakage, and you'll end of wasting money.
Create lint -
Lint is created when you're sewing and you can get a big buildup of fluff in the bobbin section of the machine. It can pull up as you're sewing, which creates a terrible mess, and no good for the item that you're sewing, or for your machine. You'll need to do a big clean out of your machine afterwards, again wasting you money and time.
Not good going through machine, knotting up -
Having a thread that continues to have knots in it. It will continues to break and cause headaches. PLUS you'll waste money, and end up throwing the thread out, and possibly even needing repairs to your machine.
When you use good quality thread, everything runs more smoothly; running through the machine and making hand sewing pleasant, too. So, invest in good quality thread, and you'll actually SAVE in the long run!
