Re: my quilting thread survey. Although I stated all threads I tried were 40 wt, in fact that is not the case. On closer inspection, the Aurifil is a 28 wt thread and the Coats & Clark is a 22 wt thread. Maybe that is why I don't like it...too thick. And even though the King Tut IS a 40 wt thread, there is only a barely discernible difference in the weight of that when compared to the Aurifil. In the end, it all comes down to the ease of use, not price or weight. I do prefer the Aurifil but will use all the brands I currently have and my guess is nobody would know the difference. And even though I need to be thrifty, I quilt for enjoyment, period.
