The Bottom Line by Libby Lehman is an innovative polyester bobbin thread for sewing with all types of top thread including metallics and designer threads. Its lint free ultra smooth silk-like finish allows it to slide, not grab, to form the perfect stitch with no snagging or knotting. By matching colors, you can sew even the finest stitch without the bobbin thread showing.
Ideal for both machine and hand appliqué, this fine 60 wt. thread disappears into the fabric resulting in perfect curves and sharp points. This soft, fine thread also prevents stiffness in embroidered designs. Superb for heirloom sewing, fine lace work and intricate trapunto. Wrap 360° around bobbin tensioner to apply appropriate tension when filling bobbin. Simply wonderful for appliqué!
Here's a tip from Kris: If possible, position your thread vertically on your sewing machine so it rotates as the thread unwinds. Placing it horizontally adds a twist to the thread as it unwinds over the end of the spool. This puts more stress and tension on the thread, which can cause breakage. If your machine doesn't have a vertical pin, try a thread stand.
This thread is priced at $7.99 for a 1420 yd spool of thread. If you have an L style bobbin, you will be able to wind 102 yards on your bobbin. The M style bobbin will hold 186 yards. Not sure what size your machine uses? Here is a Bobbin Style Compatibility Chart.
